Halo PC - Combat Evolved

 

Halo PC is new to us at TweakTown. Though we have used it in a couple of benchmarks in the past, it has now found a permanent place in our Benchmark Suite. This is simply due to its support for the latest DirectX 9 API's to put some more stress on the system to determine the best of the best.

 

 

 

While at 1600x1200 both are unplayable, at 1024x768 (which is still a good resolution for game playing) the Radeon 9550 has it all over the FX 5500.
