Left 4 Dead 2

Like its predecessor, Left 4 Dead 2 is a co-operative, survival horror, first-person shooter that pits four players against numerous hordes of Zombies. Like Half Life 2, the game uses the Source engine, however, the visual in L4D 2 are far superior to anything seen in the Half Life universe to date. The game has much more realistic water and lighting effects, more expansive maps with richer detail, more complex models, and the list goes on and on. We tested the game at various resolutions with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.


The performance trend we witnessed earlier returned in our L4D2 benchmark. Here, the PNY GeForce GTX 470 once again finishes somewhere in between the Radeon HD 5850 and 5870, and well behind the GTX 480 and Radeon HD 5970.
