DX11: Aliens vs Predator

Aliens vs. Predator is a science fiction first-person shooter video game, developed by Rebellion, and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, Sony PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Xbox 360. Aliens vs. Predator utilizes Rebellion's proprietary Asura game engine, which had previously found its way into Call of Duty: World at War and Rogue Warrior. The self-contained benchmark tool is used for our DirectX-11 tests, which push the Asura game engine to its limit.

In our benchmark tests, Aliens vs. Predator was configured to use the highest quality settings with 4x AA and 16x AF. DirectX-11 features such as Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) and tessellation have also been included, along with advanced shadows.


Cost Analysis: Aliens vs Predator (1680x1050)

  • $140 GeForce GTS 450 costs $6.93 per FPS
  • $150 Radeon HD 5770 costs $7.73 per FPS
  • Test Summary: Now that we're into the DirectX 11 benchmarks, the HD4870 is out and we focus in a bit more on the reference HD5770 versus our overclocked GTS 450 cards. All three cards perform well, but the GTS 450's do manage to pull ahead just a bit.
