Half-Life 2: Lost Coast / Episode 1
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.
At 1600×1200 the 8800 GTS 320MB does very well here and nearly matches the performance of the 640MB version and leaves the ATI X19xx series well behind. However, above that resolution, the 8800 GTS 320MB doesn’t fare nearly as well compared to its older brother.
