ASUS Radeon EAH3850 TOP Graphics Card - Benchmarks - Half Life 2 (Episode One HDR)

THE HD 3850 is sitting in the shadows a bit. We look to see if it's deserving of more credit with an O/C'ed ASUS model.

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.

 

 

While we can see that the 3850 sits a bit further back this time around, you're going to be able to play any source based game at up to 1920 x 1200 on it with no real dramas.
