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.



We can see small gains for the Crossfire setup and the 8800GT coming out ahead the whole time. What you will notice is that we have big numbers across the whole line up though, so playing a source based game at 1920 x 1200 isn't going to be any dramas on the single 3850 OC.
