CS: Source runs really well
CS: Source runs, on 16AF, 6xAA, 1600x1200 - typically in the 70s and sometimes well over 100 frames per second on my stock 6800 GT. The Half-Life hardware test thingy runs between high 40s and well over 100 on the same settings.
This is compared to an average of 50 (30-70) in Doom 3 with half the AF and 2qXAA, and 30-60 with 2AA and 8xAF in Far Cry.
The effects I've seen aren't as 'fancy' as Doom 3, but considering Far Cry's only real claim is fancy water effects I'd say the graphics are second only to D3 in any game I've played.
Oh, and 'Hi.'
In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of "world history"—yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.
