Half Life 2: Episode 2


 Half Life 2: Episode 2
 DirectX Gaming Performance

With its updated game engine, gorgeous visuals, and intelligent weapon and level design, Half Life 2 has become just as popular as its predecessor, the original Half-Life. With Episode 2, you’ll get a number of visual enhancements, such as better-looking transparent texture anti-aliasing. We ran this benchmark at 1,920 x 1,200 with 4X anti-aliasing and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently. We also enabled color correction and HDR rendering. To benchmark the cards in this test, we used a custom recorded timedemo file.

The Gamer Paladin F970 scores exceptionally well in our custom Half Life 2: EP2 demo which is affected by both available CPU and GPU resources. The Gamer Paladin F970 put up 246.71fps at 1,920 x 1,200 with 4X AA and 16 AF. This is 59.52fps better than the next-best competitor, the Smooth Creations LANShark Extreme. This is the type of performance we like to see in a gaming rig.
