Benchmark Results: Left 4 Dead
Based on Valve’s Source engine, we’d almost expect Left 4 Dead to favor AMD cards. Yet, at each resolution and with AA/AF on or off, the GeForce GTX 295 finishes ahead of AMD’s Radeon HD 4870 X2. Given the price difference between the GTX 280 and 4870 512 MB, the results of that matchup are no surprise. Still, those cards provide interesting reference points for anyone with a high-end card who is interested in upgrading.
