Left 4 Dead Tested Platform

Our test team have tested the Left 4 Dead on various computer hardware configuration and system settings. Here is three types of platform we tested on.

PC 1 (SPIDER Platform) : Perfect, 0% lag and produced awesome effects, lighting. Game graphics setting on maximum.

Processor : AMD x4 Phenom 2.5GHz 9850 Black Edition
RAM : 4GB Kingston Performance RAM 1066MHz
Graphics : ATi HD 4850 1GB onboard memory
Motherboard : ASUS 780G
HDD : 2TB (separate drives)
PSU : 850w Cooler Master
Sound : 5.1 Bravia Home Theatre
Visual : HP 22″ LCD

Basically, nothing to comment about. The gaming experience is great and the addition of the Microsoft Gaming keyboard and RAZER Diamondback Gaming mouse… its awesome!! A headphone is recommended to capture the sound details better.

PC 2 : No lag on mainstream settings, but minimal lag on gamer graphics, but not as much as the third PC

Processor : AMD x3 Phenom 2.1GHz 8450
RAM : 2GB Kingston Performance RAM 800MHz
Graphics : ATi HD 3650 512MB DDR3 onboard memory
Motherboard : ASUS Nvidia Chipset
HDD : 360GB
PSU : 500w Cooler Master
Sound : Sonic Gear 2.1
Visual : BenQ 19″ LCD

well… great graphics, but cant be pushed to maximum graphics. Graphics at minimal lag on maximum graphics. But other than that, everything is handled pretty well for the Triple Core and the ATi graphics. Shader models worked up to standard.

PC 3 : Minimal lag on mainstream graphics, not very smooth graphics gameplay due to hardware

Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo 3.00GHz
RAM : 2GB Kingston Performance RAM 800MHz
Graphics : ATi HD 2600 Gamer Edition 512MB DDR3 onboard memory
Motherboard : ASUS
HDD : 1TB (separate drives)
PSU : 500w HEC
Sound : JBL 4.1
Visual : BenQ 19″ LCD

Not a very satisfying hardware configuration. Graphics lost a minimal range of graphics detail due to graphics card not able to support high settings. Well, drop settings of shader detail, effect detail, filtering mode, anti-aliasing mode and well…..multicore rendering….
