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.

The new GeForce GTX 295 and Radeon HD 4870 X2 finished right on top of each other in our custom Left 4 Dead benchmark, when running at a resolution of 1920x1200.  However, with the resolution increased to 2560x1600, the GeForce GTX 295 once again pulls out in front, extending its margin of victory to about 17.8%.
