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.




200FPS+ in Half Life 2 Lost Coast. To say we could see the difference between that and the card running 180FPS would be a lie. But it was very cool to see an average of over 200FPS being achieved on a card which is in our mid/high end sector and not purely high-end.


We can clearly see that the cards are being stressed with our HDR tests but again the overclocked 7900GS is menacing although at stock, it still does lag behind the X1900GT.
