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 Alien vs. Predator benchmark also proved to be a strong point for the Radeon HD 6990, which bested the new GeForce GTX 590 by a wide margin at both resolutions.

The quad-CrossFireX dual-Radeon HD 6990 setup showed no scaling in the AvP benchmark, while the quad-SLI rig showed huge gains. As such, the quad-SLI rig clearly leads the pack here.
