DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

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 performance trend in out Alien vs. Predator tests matches 3DMark Fire Strike on the previous page. The GeForce GTX 760 cards outpace the 660 Ti, but trail the GeForce GTX 770 and Radeon HD 7950 at both resolutions.

Frame capture analysis of the single-GPU configurations doesn't reveal any major issues. The GeForce GTX 770 consistently delivered the fastest frames, followed by the 7950, GTX 760s, and then the Radeon HD 7870.

The multi-GPU tests, however, show major frame pacing issues with the Radeon HD 7950 CrossFire configuration. So much so that you can't even see the GeForce plots. Regardless, the frametime percentiles tell the story. The SLI configurations offered the lowest frame times across the board.
