By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism, responsiveness and new HDR technology, Half-Life 2 Lost Coast 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: Lost Coast (with HDR effects enabled) 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.
In to our first real-world benchmark we can see the same as our synthetic tests. The SLI combination and the XFX 7950GX2 XXX are very close with the XXX again winning and the stock clocked Leadtek lagging back a fair bit.
