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.

 

 

 

What we can see is that without HDR up to 1600 x 1200, the Radeon X1950PRO has a clear lead, at 1920 x 1200 the cards score similar.

 

Low resolution HDR tests also show the Radeon X1950PRO ahead but when we increase the resolution the cards come closer together, the X1950PRO does sustain the lead, though.
