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)
Test Summary: In the Alien vs Predator benchmark it is the turn of the AMD hardware to show what it is made of. Even with its extreme overclock the MSI GTX 560Ti Hawk struggles to match even a stock HD6950. If this is your sort of game you would be best to own an AMD card. The MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III PE/OC handles its own and delivers very respectable frame rates at both resolutions.
