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.
When it comes to gaming without HDR enabled, we can see that there isn't a real issue with either card.
The Radeon X1650XT offers a pretty solid performance at the higher 1920 x 1200 resolution. When we do turn around and use HDR, we can see that we don't really want to be venturing past 1280 x 1024 with the X1650XT although the X1950PRO can hold up even at 1920 x 1200.
