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 Radeon HD 7950 had no trouble outpacing all of the other single-GPU powered cards in Alien vs. Predator, save for the higher-end Radeon HD 7970. The dual-GPU powered cards, however, maintained a significant lead. Also note, the RC11 drivers gave the 7970 a nice performance boost here.

CrossFire also scaled properly in this game and the Radeon HD 6950 CrossFire rig trailed only the dual-card Radeon HD 7970 setup.
