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 DX11 Alien vs. Predator benchmark really puts a beating on these mainstream graphics cards when high image quality settings are used. Here, the Radeon HD 5770 outperforms the reference GeForce GTS 450 but is evenly matched with the overclocked cards from Asus and EVGA.
