AMD A8-3870K Gaming Performance

Left 4 Dead 2

Developer: Valve Software

From our Left 4 Dead 2 review:
'Not only does Left 4 Dead 2 provide a chance to test your skills against a whole host of new enemies and using a slew of new equipments, it also lets you play with the new modes and maps created by Valve – and the worst levels created by Valve are still twice as good as the best created by amateur map-makers.'

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Publisher: Activision

From our Call of Duty: Black Ops Review:
'Black Ops simply refuses to commit to a single theatre of violence; there are battles in tropical trenches, frozen tundra, barren wastelands and across night-blanketed rooftops. Mason and Co. fight on land, on water, in the air and beneath the oceans - the constant movement from one to another is enough to partly compensate for the enormous plot holes and occasional dud levels.'

We test with the game at its maximum detail settings as configured in the in-game menus. The maximum frame rate is capped at 91fps by default, so we've increased this to 250fps in the config file. We run a 90-second section of the game's multiplayer component, played back via the excellent built-in replay viewer.
