Left 4 Dead is a new release from Valve that leaves you as part of a group of survivors in a world where an infection has rapidly turned the populace into a zombie horde. You goal is to make it to a rescue point, all the while fighting what seems like overwhelming odds. Along the way there are safe houses where you can replenish your weapons and health. The movie 'I Am Legend' comes to mind to set the stage for this game. But unlike the movie, there are four characters and not just a lone gun and his faithful companion. The horde is not at all like the typical slow walking, foot shuffling zombie. These zombies are quick and work with the pack mentality. Your job: survival! .

Settings:

  • Anti-Aliasing: x4
  • Anisotropic Filtering: x16

Higher Scores = Better Performance

 

In the quad GPU testing, the difference between Red and Green cards is 6 FPS at 1920x1200, and 16 FPS at 2560x1600. At 1920x1200, the 4850x2 CrossFireX setup performs within 10 FPS of the HD 4870x2's. The GTX 285 outperforms the HD 4870x2's in both resolutions, and outperforms all of the standard multi GPU combinations in both resolutions.
