Half-Life 2 – Town – High End
Half-Life 2 (Direct X)
This was one of the most anticipated games in PC history, and even with the troubles it has had with Steam, HL2 drives-on as a great game and great benchmark for PC systems. Below are the default settings we used for our testing today. Actually, we enabled Reflect All instead of Reflect World and AA and AF were enabled where indicated.
Here is a typical scene from our Town run through:
The X1800 XT is solid competition for the GTX from NVIDIA here as we would expect to see in HL2.
The XL is close to the performance levels of the 7800 GT but the GTX is still a ways ahead of it.
