More about the Radeon 9800 XT + Half Life 2 delayed

Posted on Thursday, September 25 2003 @ 13:00:07 CEST by

The Inquirer writes that there are some problems with the planned launch of Half Life 2 on the 30th of September. They have also posted the planned clock speeds of the upcoming Radeon 9800XT graphics card.

THE HALF-LIFE 2 'Launch' on the 30th of this month, will be a half-assed affair, we learn, with possibly just a few choice cuts of the hotly-anticipated game on show and a few samples of the Radeon 9800XT. At best, we might end up with demo of Half Life 2 for benchmarking -- if we're lucky.

Still, ATI have few samples but just a few that are clocked, as we said at 412MHz and 730MHz, but those are extremely rare birds. This clock details indicates that card is one of the first samples and this non-uniform frequency indicates that ATI sill doesn't know its yields.

Anyhow, according to the original plans, the card should rock at 425 or more MHz and should be promised to be in the channels within two weeks from launch. Still, we simply don’t see this happening. This semiconductor game sure seems a messed up business
