HL2 : EP2
Half-Life® 2: Episode Two is the second in a trilogy of new games created by Valve that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life® adventure.
As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.
Episode Two extends the award-winning Half-Life game-play with unique weapons, vehicles, and newly-spawned creatures.
As we've witnessed in our previous reviews, the HL2:EP2 benchmark is heavily CPU-limited at the lower settings. Here the HD 4770 posts some nice scores like the other cards, but it sags behind with the higher settings. Here the HD 4850 manages to take a small lead, but as the HD 4850 Golden Sample is running at higher speeds than the stock versions, the difference is somewhat smaller when comparing stock cards.
Call of Duty 4 is one of the few recent games that are still DirectX9 only. Despite this it still manages to look realistic and also fits well to testing purposes. Results were gathered with some help from Fraps.
Nothing really new here. The HD 4770 at stock settings comes in behind the HD4850, but after overclocking it passes it with a slightly better minimum FPS. This is one of the benchmarks where the old 8800 GTX really shows its teeth, as it beats the HD 4850 with a healthy margin in the average FPS.
The same situation as with the smaller resolution prevails here.
