By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism, responsiveness and new HDR technology, Half-Life 2 Lost Coast opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

 

We benchmark Half Life 2 Lost Coast with our own custom timedemos as to avoid possible driver optimizations using the "record demo_name" command and loading the timedemo with the "timedemo demo_name" command - For a full list of the commands, click here.

 

 

 

Lost Coast has always been a favorite to ATI and the Championship Edition from GeCube only extends the lead in our non HDR tests.

 

When we move to the more intensive side of things, in this case high resolution HDR gaming, we can see that the stock clocked 7950GT is able to outperform the X1950PRO cards.
