Aliens V Predator has proved to be a big seller since the release and Sega have taken the franchise into new territory after taking it from Sierra. AVP is a Direct X 11 supported title and delivers not only advanced shadow rendering but high quality tessellation for the cards on test today.
To test the cards we used a 1080p resolution with DX11, Texture Quality Very High, MSAA Samples 1, 16 af, ambient occulsion on, shadow complexity high, motion blur on. We use this with most of our graphics card testing so cards are comparable throughout reviews.
Alien V Predator is an intensive Direct X 11 engine which can cause problems for many graphics cards at these settings. The new architecture has noticeable improvements over the last generation, averaging over 90 fps compared to just under 70 fps from both GTX580 and HD6970.AMD HD7970 Graphics Card Review,
