Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast (Direct X)
Lost Coast is the free technology demo that Valve created to show off their HDR rendering technique. Because this method of doing HDR (high dynamic range) lighting uses integer math instead of floating point, both ATI and NVIDIA cards can do both HDR and AA at the same time.
Looks like the best came here at the end: the 8800 GTX simply demolishes the competition! At 1600×1200 and 2048×1536, the 8800 GTX is more than 100% faster than the ATI X1950 XTX card and is 85% faster at 2560×1600! Minimum frame rates follow a similar performance delta; there is simply no doubting that G80 has it where it counts.
