Half-Life 2: Lost Coast

The improved Source engine this demo is based on uses much more shader-based special effects than the original Half-Life 2 does. The results suggest that it’s good to have more pixel processors if you want to play the next-generation Half-Life: the GeForce 7900 GT is almost 10% ahead of the Radeon X1800 XT. At the same time, the ASUS card is about 15% slower than the GeForce 7900 GT.

It’s in 1024x768 that you have the biggest gain from the overclocked frequencies of the EN7800GT Top Silent – its average performance is near 60fps then. In higher resolutions the average performance of all the cards is far from comfortable level.

Project: Snowblind

This game is so simple that all the cards in this review are very fast in it; even the Radeon X1800 XL maintains a frame rate of over 40fps. The ASUS is from 5 to 12% faster than the reference card depending on the display resolution.

This game is also tested with Fraps, but we used the cut-scene available in it, so you may be assured of the accuracy and repeatability of the results.
