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 ATI favorite HL2 sees that only under extreme pressure (1600x1200 with and without HDR) that the Radeon X1950GT can hold its ground against the other two graphics cards, the lower resolution sees it lagging behind a lot.

 

The extra 256MB of onboard memory on the Radeon X1950GT over the other two graphics cards seems to be paying dividends as the cards are put under higher levels of stress.
