HL2 Episode 1 – Dual 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.
We were only able to get scores from AMD’s CrossFire rig on the 1600×1200 resolution because it was crashing on us at the higher ones. We are trying to figure out what the issue was and will update here if I can get it running stable.
At that resolution though, the AMD HD 2900 XT does scale a small percentage better than NVIDIA’s 8800 GTS cards.
