ASUS Radeon R9 270 Direct CU II Review

Alien vs. Predator
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

Alien vs. Predator

The Alien vs. Predator benchmark makes use of the advanced Tessellation, screen space ambient occlusion, and high-quality shadow features available with DirectX 11. In addition to enabling all of the aforementioned DirectX 11-related features offered by this benchmark, we also switched on 4X anti-aliasing along with 16X anisotropic filtering to more heavily tax the graphics cards being tested.

The performance trend in the Alien vs. Predator benchmark roughly mirrors those of 3DMark on the previous page. Here, once again, the Asus Radeon R9 270 DirectCU II finishes right in between the Radeon R9 270X and Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, but well ahead on NVIDIA's more mainstream GeForces.
