BFG Tech GeForce 8600GTS OC Graphics Card (Factory Overclocked) - Benchmarks - Half Life 2 (Lost Coast)

BFG 8600GTS OC is next on the chopping block but just because it comes factory overclocked, does it make it worth it?

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.

 

 

 

We can see that when we move to Half Life the gains on the overclocked model from BFG Tech are a lot more noticeable when compared to a stock-clocked offering.
