source games have always been cpu intensive,add a horde of zombies and you have a even more cpu bound game.and 8xAA is ridiculously easy in half life 2 based games,and multi gpu seems less gpu bottlenecked for ati since their driver must have a lower cpu workload.

GPU bound? CPU Bound? Heck, I think we just discovered the condition of "Game Bound". The only reason the FPS wasn't higher is because the hardware had nothing to do.

I refuse to believe that L4D is more demanding than Oblivion.

It's a Valve game, what did you expect?

Source engine was revolutionary not only in the physics but also in the optimisation department.

Yes, years ago it was. I'm not knocking it, but it really is becoming dated quickly and it shows.

Valve know that the PC gaming audience is a wide one, and so many of them have mid-range hardware, or less.
