HL2 Episode 1 – Single Card
Half-Life 2: Episode 1 (DirectX 9)
The Half-Life 2 series is just too popular to stop and Valve’s move to episodic gaming with HL2: Episode 1 has so far paid off. Based largely around the technology demo of HL2: Lost Coast, Episode 1 brings new shaders and HDR to gamer’s taking the role of Gordon Freeman.
The performance on the new AMD HD 2900 XT is just barely winning over the 8800 GTS 640MB card again, though the minimum frame rates see a better value with NVIDIA’s cards.
