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 shows us scoring just under 100 FPS average at 1600 X 1200 and for a game of this detail, that is exceptional. You can see that the system is barley impacted from the move to 1600 X 1200 from 1024 X 768.
