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

 

 

Mid Range Performance - At the lower resolution the cards are all extremely close together with the 6600GT coming out on top with the mid range card. At the higher resolution the 6600GT is well and truly out in front.

 

High End Performance - While the cards are close to each other at the lower resolution, we see the ATI cards separate from the pack at the higher resolution.
