Half-Life 2 PerformanceContinuing our look into game development performance, we take a look at Half-Life 2. This DX9 based game actually runs fine on all the cards that we tested. We expected there to be some visual issues with the Realizm 200 (based on what we will see in Shadermark performance on the next page), but everything looked exactly as what we would expect.
Performance is still horrid for the 3Dlabs part. Anyone wanting to run a box that combines DCC and any in-engine game development tools should absolutely stick to either the ATI or NVIDIA workstation solutions.
