Sounds good to me, and it would be a decent time to release it (beating Doom 3 to the punch...hopefully). Though that date can of course change, it's possible that they just pulled a date out of their arses to make ATI happy. But this would be good news if it's true, less then 3 months to go! I wonder if ATI will make ANOTHER refresh card for the release of HL2...oh what am I saying, of course they will!

Hopefully the delay was not only because of the game being incomplete (or Valve waiting for the leaked version to lose it's appeal). Hopefully they have added a bunch of cool stuff that will make the leaked version obsolete.

Hell, there's a very good chance that'll be around the same time as the R420.

February would be a nice surprise. I was expecting April at the earliest.

Nice. Looking forward to it.


Any word on the minimum, recommended and optimum specs? (nearest to official would be nice on the source)
