Half-Life 2 – Canals09

Our second HL2 run through takes place in the Canals portion of the game where there are a lot of water reflections to deal with.  Here’s a typical scene from our run through:

This level in HL2 is much for shader intensive and you can see both cards do pretty well even at the 1280×960 resolution we tested at.  The ATI card has a small advantage but overall I would consider it a tie.
