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 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.

 

 

 

SLI always seems to take slight step backwards when it comes to Half Life 2 performance. When comparing the single cards to each other the ATI Radeon as always sneaks ahead thanks to its close relationship with Valve.

 

At the higher resolution when more strain is placed on the graphics card, we see that while it is still faster the difference between the two cards is less.
