Half-Life 2/ATI Bundle?

German site Gamestar.de (thanks HomeLAN Fed) has word (in German, naturally, here's the rough Babel Fish translation) has word from their sister print publication that the release of ATI's RADEON 9900 Pro video card will be bundled with Half-Life 2. They also have word that the game is expected to go gold on September 13, though they do not offer the basis for this claim, though they do point out that both the gold date and the ATI news add further confusion to recent stories about the game's release date (story and story) and an interesting wrinkle to discussions of video card support (story and story).

Sid, I have a 9500 Pro and it does the same thing on certain games. Drawing the distant horizon is almost always a mess unless the card fogs it out. Take BF1942 it just fogs out the edges at a certain distance. Video cards have always done this because it's also a matter of how the game engine is built. Yeah, some of them do it better than others. And I tend to like ATI a bit more than Nvidia at this time. But my Radeon 9500 Pro has texture tearing or other wierd shit going on at times too. It just depends on what game is playing. Take Raven Shield for example. I get missing texture so they appear as a solid black door or section of wall. Now that may just be the game engine and probably is. So again it just depends on so many other factors as to which is better and your opinion on that. But anyone stating that ATI always looks better is state an opinion not a fact. That is all I am saying. You can quote me frames per second and give me shader jargon until you are blue in the face. What I believe is what I see. And no video card is perfect they all have faults that will show on the screen. One thing is for sure... we have come a long way since the first few generations of cards. The one's that only ran certain games fairly well and looked like crap on most others.
