Benchmark Results: Left 4 Dead
In Left 4 Dead's 3D shooter game world, protagonists bite, claw, and blast their way through hordes of zombies. This game runs on an enhanced version of the Source Engine from Half Life 2. Owing to excellent support for multi-core processors and a modest appetite for 3D effects, gamers are virtually guaranteed completely fluid frame rates in Left 4 Dead.
For high-end tests, graphics quality was set to Very High, which guarantees the best possible graphics quality. The highest test setting for AA was 8x. We used a variety of timedemo items for our frame rate tests, where the Survivors group conducts a running street battle with countless zombies.
