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.

This graph is almost scary to look at. The Radeon HD 6990's performance here was roughly double that of the Radeon HD 6970 and about 86% faster than the GeForce GTX 580.
