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 performance seems to be up and down and we think it is safe to put this down to some early drivers.

 

We don't have any doubts thought that Half Life 2 performance will increase greatly when we get our first official set of Catalyst drivers for the X1K series of cards.
