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.
The reference clocked HD7770’s in Crossfire X are just slightly slower than the reference clocked Nvidia GTX580. Thanks to the healthy overclock on both XFX HD7770’s they manage to outperform the GTX580, averaging 74 frames per second (5 fps more).
