The Sequel to Valve Corporation’s award-winning Left 4 Dead, Left
4 Dead 2 involves the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic. There has
been an outbreak of a pathogen that causes infected humans to behave
like zombies. The four survivors have to fight their way through the
hordes of infected, using safehouses along the way to rest and recover
in order to reach extraction points. This takes place in the southern
United States, featuring Savannah, GA and New Orleans, LA.
We tested Left 4 Dead 2 at it’s highest settings but with no Anti-Aliasing at three resolutions, 1024×768, 1680×1050, and 1920×1080.
Benchmark Results: The Phenom II X4 840 processor shows roughly the same performance in Left 4 Dead 2 as the Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700, while the X4 975 BE is able to match the performance levels of the Core i5 750 and even the Core i7 875K.
