Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Dell Dropping Itanium! - Dell Dropping Itanium!
Fri, September 16 2005 | 2:33PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Hmm, I thought Microsoft was getting out of the hardware business. Anyway it has just released a high performance gaming mouse, the Laser Mouse 6000. Ouch, this must have hurt, Dell is dropping the Itanium all together! Do you want to know more about HDR technology? Well looks like the HL2 Lost Coast expansion pack will support this feature.

As Gabe Newell, founder and Managing Director of Valve Software explained to us, adding advanced features to a project gets exponentially more complicated the larger the project is. That's why, although Valve originally wanted to bring HDR technology to Half-Life 2, the five-year project could not cope with the additional complexity of adding this feature. The company went through no fewer than four different attempts to integrate full HDR rendering with the Source engine, using a small level to test the look and performance of the new effects each time.
