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 trend that we've seen in the majority of tests to this point, played out again in the Alien vs. Predator benchmark. In this test, the Radeon HD 7870 outpaced the GeForce GTX 570 and the Radeon HD 7850 pulled ahead of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
