''Half Life 2 - The auction, ATI bidded $8 million ''

Posted on Monday, September 15 2003 @ 11:09:14 CEST by

The Inquirer reports that they have contacted Valve to ask if they have put Half Life 2 out to bid for the 2 graphic giants ATI and NVIDIA :

So far, we haven't heard back from Valve and we wouldn't expect ATI to comment. But sources close to Nvidia suggest that the bidding could have reached as much as $8 million before it withdrew from the auction.

Valve made an unprecedented attack on Nvidia and the performance of its technology last week at an ATI sponsored day.

If the reports of this auction and these allegations are true, this would certainly put a different colour on Valve's statements about Nvidia's benchmarks.

We wonder that if such an auction did take place, and if Nvidia had ended up with a Half Life bundling deal, whether Valve would still have the same view about its benchmarks.

We've contacted Nvidia about the allegations but the company refuses to comment
