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.




In the first of our real world tests we can see that all models are going to give you a nice playable line up at 1600 x 1200 and below. When we move to our HDR tests if you're going to be gaming with it enabled at a higher resolution, you're going to want to be looking more to the GeForce 7900GT and above.
