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 medium quality settings with 4x AA and 16x AF. DirectX-11 features such as Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) and tessellation have also been included.
Cost Analysis: Aliens vs Predator (1920x1080)
Test Summary: In our first DX11 title, our two DX11 cards are running neck and neck. This time the results are well within the margin of error and it seems that both cards are equal. It is only after overclocked the AX5770 PCS+ even more than it was already that the PowerColor Radeon HD 5770 manages to pull ahead. This is a pretty good sign, however, considering the AX5770 PCS+ lagged behind somewhat in most of the DX10 benchmarks.
