nVidia's next big thing - GeForce 7800 GTX (Part 2 - Performance Comparisons) - Benchmarks - Half Life 2

With the NDA being lifted just over 24 hours ago and our GeForce 7800 GTX sample reference cards rocking up just as we predicted, we are going to have a look into the second part of our article in regards to performance. We will have a quick look at our test system setup along with our general feelings on the new GPU.

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.

 

 

In our first real world game benchmark you can see at the lower resolution we don't have a huge difference between and it's not until we move over to the higher resolution that we see the single 7800 GTX come close to doubling the performance of the 6800GT.
