By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism, responsiveness and new HDR technology, Half-Life 2 Episode Two 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 Episode Two 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.



Moving to our first real-world game, we can see that the GTX is able to perform again on par with the dual core 9800 GX2. The HD 3870 X2 manages to hold a decent lead thanks to the good performance AMD based cards get under the Source based engine.
