Software Description

This is a new program that allows you to benchmark your system with today’s most popular FPS-game, Half-Life 2. The program does not modify any registry-entries or configuration files, so it is completely safe to use. It contains 5 built in demos; you can set filtering methods, resolutions and much much more.

The world of Half-Life 2 has amazed everyone with its great story, graphics and Valve's great support.

This benchmark is as accurate as our other ones; if you're able to change the graphic details between Minimum and Maximum, we suggest leaving it at the maximum setting to deliver the best graphics possible.
