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 its highest settings but with no Anti-Aliasing at three resolutions, 1024×768, 1680×1050, and 1920×1080.
The i5 2500K performance in Left 4 Dead 2 is pretty impressive! At both of the tested resolutions it had extremely playable performance. This also shows you just how much more performance can be gained from an inexpensive add-in graphics card.
