Half Life 2: Episode 2 benchmarked

Posted on Wednesday, October 10 2007 @ 14:37:15 CEST by

HardOCP took a quick look at the performance of Valve's new Half Life 2: Episode 2.
We are working on a full performance and image quality apples-to-apples article comparing the Radeon 2900 XT and GeForce 8 series video cards. Until that is ready we’d like to share with you our first performance experiences with the game with a quick apples-to-apples performance comparison. The graphs below consist of a run-through of the entire first level of Half Life 2: Episode 2 in an apples-to-apples format. We have chosen to run at 1600x1200 4XAA/16XAF maximum in-game settings on all video cards under Windows Vista x64 Ultimate using Catalyst 7.10 for the 2900 XT and ForceWare 163.75 for the GeForce 8 series video cards with a C2D X6800/680i platform.
Check it out over here. The GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB and 640MB beat the Radeon 2900 XT by a small margin, while the GeForce 8800 GTS and Ultra totally own the latter cards.
