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.




The lower resolution sees the cards separated more but when we start moving up and turning on HDR, we can see that more pressure is placed on the cards and the GeForce 7900GS is able to come in and close the gap.


Even being cheaper than the Radeon, it is able to give us a playable gaming experience in Half Life at 1920 x 1200 with HDR enabled.
