Half-Life 2: Episode 2
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 weapon and level design, Half-Life 2 became just as popular. Episode 2 offers a number of visual enhancements, including better looking transparent texture anti-aliasing. These tests were run at resolutions of 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 with 4x anti-aliasing and 8x anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently. Color correction and HDR rendering were also enabled in the game engine as well. We used a custom recorded timedemo file to benchmark all cards in this test.

Once again, the GV-NX88T512HP beats out the competition in our test system, but this time it doesn't win all of the tests. The Radeon HD 3850 dominates the 1280x1024 no AA / no AF test by a wide margin. The GV-NX88T512HP puts a mark in the win column for the three other settings. The GV-NX88T512HP SLI configuration doesn't show off much until we run the 1600x1200 4x AA / 8x AF / HDR test. At this setting, the pair of GV-NX88T512HPs beat the rest of the pack by 18 FPS or more.
