DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

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.

Our Alien vs. Predator numbers look very much like the 3DMark Fire Strike numbers on the previous page. The performance trend was identical, though the Radeon R7 260X came somewhat closer to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost this time around.

The performance data recorded with FCAT (Frame Capture Analysis Tools) doesn't show any major issues with any of the cards. The cadence was similar from card to card, though obviously the higher-performing products offered much lower frame latencies across the board.
