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 increased memory bandwidth offered by the MSI N480GTX Lightning gives it a slight edge over the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 480 SOC card in the Alien vs. Predator benchmark. Both cards have no trouble outpacing the reference GeForce GTX 480 and Radeon HD 5870.
