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 GeForce GTX 690 put a hurtin' on all of the other single cards in the Alien vs. Predator benchmark, nearly doubling the performance of the GeForce GTX 680.

Versus the similarly priced CrossFire and SLI configurations, the GeForce GTX 690's performance is less dominating. NVIDIA's new flagship trailed the Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 CrossFire setups here, and obviously falls in right behind the slightly higher clocked GeForce GTX 680 SLI setup.
