Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2 is a team-based first-person shooter multiplayer video game developed by Valve. A sequel to Valve’s previous Team Fortress Classic, it was first released as part of the video game compilation The Orange Box, which featured games like Half Life 2:Episode 2 and Portal. Team Fortress 2 is focused around two opposing teams competing for an objective. Players can choose to play as one of nine classes in these teams, each with his own unique strengths and weaknesses.

Games based on the source engine are fairly CPU limited. That is the reason why we see a substantial gain in average FPS even at 1920×1200.
