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 is significantly impacted by available memory bandwidth, and as such, the overclocked GeForce GTX 670 cards are able to overtake the reference GeForce GTX 680 here. The Radeon HD 7970, however, puts up the best scores out of the single-GPU powered cards.

The GeForce GTX 670 SLI configurations drops in right between the GeForce GTX 690 and GeForce GTX 680 SLI setup. the Radeon HD 7900 series cards offer better scaling in this game though, and are able to overtake the GeForces (save for the quad-SLI GTX 590 setup).
