Half Life 2:
Episode 1

Thanks to the dedication of hardcore PC gamers and a huge mod-community, the original Half-Life became one of the most successful first person shooters of all time.  And thanks to an updated game engine, gorgeous visual, and intelligent weapong and level design, Half Life 2 became almost as popular.  Armed with the latest episodic update to HL2, Episode 1, we benchmarked the game with a long, custom-recorded timedemo that takes us through both outdoor and indoor environments. These tests were run at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 through 21,920 x 1,200 with 4X anti-aliasing and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently, and with color correction and HDR rendering enabled in the game engine as well.




Our multi-GPU HL 2: Episode 1 tests mirror those of the single card tests from a few pages back.  The Diamond Viper HD 2900 XT 1GB CrossFire configuration is marginally faster than the 512MB Radeon HD 2900 XT setup, but the GeForce cards held a commmanding lead.
