News Article Title : Half Life 2 Graphics Performance
Category : PC - Windows
Date Added : 2003-10-05 10:59:06
Written By : Richard Wilburn

Gabe Newell of Valve was critical of the way NVIDIA was attempting to ‘cheat’ users by using cheap tactics. He said they had seen cases where fog was completely removed from a level in one of HL2, by the graphics driver software, in order to improve performance. He also mentioned that he's seen drivers detect screen capture attempts and output higher quality data than what's actually shown in-game. NVIDIA wasn’t alone with the criticism of ATI's "Shader Days".

Over the past six months or so, there is a rich thicket of issues surrounding benchmarking, driver optimizations, and next-gen graphics hardware. This was mainly due to NVIDIA’s fight to remain better than ATI.

A shocking set of benchmarks were released for Half-Life 2, which confirmed ATI’s massive dominance, with the Raedon 9800 pro almost 2 times faster than the Geforce FX 5900 ultra.
