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.

 

 

 

Hal Life has never seen performance gains with SLI and under more intensive situations, it actually sees a slight drop. This is no different with the GeForce 8800GTS cards in SLI from MSI.

 

You would hope under the load of 2560 x 1600 and with HDR enabled that we would see an increase but unfortunately we do not.
