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 R9 290X, whether in Uber or Quiet mode, also put up the best scores in the again Alien vs. Predator benchmark, besting all other cards by a wide margin.

Our FCAT results show that there were no major issues with frame pacing with any of the cards, which is what we've come to expect from single-GPU configurations. The higher-performing cards output frames at a quicker rate, but there are no major spikes or dips in frame time to speak of here.
