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.

 

 

 

Lost Coast was never able to make use of the SLI capabilities that the 7950GX2.

 

Here we can see that the single core 8800GTS solution gives us massive performance with it again being ahead of the X1950XTX, which has always been quite a favorite in Half Life 2.
