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.

In our final game test, we saw more of the same. In the Alien vs. Predator benchmark, the Radeon HD 7970 put up scores roughly 21% higher than the Radeon HD 6970 and between 18.7% and 26.5% higher than the single-GPU powered GeForce GTX 580s. The dual-GPU powered cards couldn't be touched, however.
