Alien vs. Predator

The Aliens 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.

We saw more of the same with the Aliens vs. Predator benchmark, but the deltas separating the cards were somewhat different. The Radeon HD 7790 cards were still faster than the Radeon HD 7770 and GeForce GTX 650, and the Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 660 were still the fastest overall. The higher-end cards, however, finished well out in front of the 7790 cards, due to the 7850 and GTX 660 offering significantly more memory bandwidth.
