Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead is a co-operative, survival horror, first-person shooter that was developed by Turtle Rock Studios, which was purchased by Valve part-way into development. Like Half Life 2, the game uses the Source engine, however, the visual in L4D are far superior to anything seen in the Half Life universe to date. The game pits four Survivors of an apocalyptic pandemic against hordes of aggressive zombies. We tested the game at resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 and 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.

We saw more of the same in our custom Left 4 Dead benchmark. The performance trend in this test was identical to all of the others. It's worth noting, however, that despite being affordable, mid-range offerings, the Radeon HD 5700 series cards put up near playable (or playable, depending on your opinion) framerates in this game, with anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled, at 2560x1600.
