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 Two 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 Two 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.

 

 

Finally we leave with Episode Two, and we can see that the HD 3870 is able to come out ahead of the stock clocked ASUS 9600GT across the board, but that little bump in MHz lets the 9600GT beat out the HD 3870 at all resolutions.
