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.
Left 4 Dead 2 paints a similar picture as Starcraft II, we are limited by the AMD Radeon HD 6950 at 1920×1080. Performance for any of the four scenarios is off the chart. At lower resolutions we see the 2600K at 4.9GHz with the Kingston HyperX Genesis 2133MHz memory kit pull away.
