"Half Life 2.0 will be offered to retail as part of an Ati card software discounted deal at time of HL2 launch. The Ati people were somewhat satisfied that it would counter the Nvidia spinning logo promotions of late, as HL2 had been optimised to run on 9800's etc."
So there we have it. Until Valve release the HL2 benchmark (probably next month) we won't know for sure how well it will perform, but everything we hear right now is pointing towards an ATi coup. If true (and we'll bet our wellingtons on it), it will mean that the card of choice this Christmas will undoubtedly be ATi - a significant kick in the nuts for Graphzilla. µ
