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.

 

 

At the lower resolutions here we can see we are bouncing off a bit of a wall hence the results being a bit over the place.

 

As we move up we can see that while the HD 2900 XT is only just behind the GTX, the Ultra has quite the lead. The important thing to note though is that both cards are still offering a very playable setup.
