By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism, responsiveness and new HDR technology, Half-Life 2 Episode One 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 Episode One 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.



Moving into the real word department we see that the BFG Tech 8600GTS OC is able to break the 60 FPS mark at 1600 x 1200 and when overclocked has no trouble getting over 50 FPS at 1920 x 1200.
