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.

 

 

 

Non-HDR tests show us the difference in the cards at the both resolutions and when we move to HDR enabled testing, the low resolutions tests sit very close together with the high resolution separating the two cards.

 

The overclock has had very little affect though across the board but what is a few FPS when your pumping out 80+ FPS anyway?
