The Source engine is a 3D game engine developed by Valve Corporation. Its unique features include a large degree of modularity and flexibility, an artist-driven, shader-based renderer, accurate lip sync and facial expression technology, and a powerful, efficient and completely network-enabled physics system.

Yo, half-life 2 is on DirectX 9, and I think people are working to get it up to 10(if they haven't done it already), so you're slow to the news, bro.
