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

 

 

Half Life 2 at the lower resolution shows us nothing with the 512MB scoring slightly lower but when we move it to 1600 x 1200 we see a 3FPS jump on the 256MB offering which translates into roughly 7% which isn't too bad.
