Benchmark Results: Left 4 Dead
The GeForce GTS 250 garners a small win over the GTX 9800+ at 1280x1024, which evaporates as the resolution increases. Thus, we’d chalk that one up to BFG’s differentiating overclock. The GeForce GTX 260 is still faster than the GTS 250 at every resolution, but its lead isn’t as commanding as it is in the next couple of benchmarks.
Beyond 1280x1024, AMD’s Radeon HD 4850 is actually faster than the GTS 250, if only by a hair. Let’s see if that changes as AA and AF are turned on.
With the exception of 1280x1024, the GeForce GTS 250 and Radeon HD 4850 are dead even here.
The GeForce GTX 260’s lead extends over this latest mainstream offering from Nvidia, and there is almost zero difference between the GTS 250 and the GTX 9800+ based on the same graphics processor.
