    Michael has mentioned several times that he has a reliable inside source within Valve telling him these things, he just can't mention the guy's name in public. Whether you believe Michael or not is up to you, but I'd say it's much better than a rumor. What I wouldn't have done was started claiming it was "official" like Phoronix did, because it's still unofficial until it's publicly announced.
    Indeed. That's my main beef with all of this.

      Riight. I know for a fact that he's done this once before and I questioned him much like you guys are doing right now. However, the AMD stuff he was going on about in the same manner DID come to pass- and a bit later than he claimed. Now, before you dismiss this...Michael DID use things in recent times like an internal Codename for the driver codebase that only people within ATI/AMD or those NDAed before the release of the Windows drivers when Vista rolled out would've known about.

      I'm willing to sit back and see if he's right again.

        if my quality is like the quality of the LGP DRM server then yes worst

        last time i play an physX game it runs in wine right CPU only(amd card).

        physX for linux is just worst because x87 code no multicore and nvidia only on the gpu

        my info is right just because UT3 need vertex texture fetch VTF and an vanilla OGL2.1 can't handle this you need OGL3 or extensions but for exampel dx9 amd hardware can not handle VTF

        thats just an exampel.

        if the game runs on 2.1+extensions this means the game do not run on 2.1 at all.

Just learned to wait until things are in actual shape to start being widespread before claiming that everyone will adopt it.
            Yeah, damn media tried to sell me Betamax and HD-DVD :P

                ogl2.1=dx9BBBBB UT3 is designed for DX9CCCCCCCCC+VTF thats in FACT OGL3!

                because you can not run it on dc9 hardware like an X1950

                Again not true. UT3 could use Physx. It was not a requirement. In fact IIRC the physx enabled levels had to be downloaded and were not part of the actual release. Also Physx is available for linux. In fact LGP even released a game utilizing it. Shadowgrounds.

                physX runs yes but on the most pc's singlecore only and old X87code only.

                in fact pysX is shit!

                  Dude I can tell you for a fact that that UT3 was running fine in early 2008 on wine on a 8800GT.

                    UT3 came out November of 2007. Again get your facts straight.

                      UT3 could be even ran on a 6200 and even an ATI 9600.
