View Full Version : Det50 and HL2 optimizations

09-11-03, 08:08 AM
Det50 contains optimizations for Half Life 2.

If the following conditions are met:
*The IQ differences between ATI cards (FP) and Nvidia (PP) with Det50 on Half Life 2 is not noticable during gameplay
* Nvidia cards outperform ATI cards with Det50 in all available HL2 benchmarks and during gameplay when the game is available

Would you state Nvidia is the best card for Half Life 2 if the IQ is the same during gameplay, and the performance is better? If not, why not?

Try to take this on from the perspective of a consumer and not a developer. Remember, the devs of HL2 may be pissed that they had to spend so much time optimizing for PP of NV3x, but the end result is that it may look no different than FP on ATI cards.

I would. IF nvidia can do that. And f* big ancient IF.

yes, probably. so?

Please stop with the conspiracy theories. The drivers aren't out, why not hold on and see how they perform yourself ? :)

There are two-three other threads where you can discuss that issue.
