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 2560×1600 resolution with DX11, Texture Quality Very High, MSAA Samples 1, 16 af, ambient occulsion on, shadow complexity high, motion blur on.
We don’t feel there is any point in testing games at 1024×768 with low image quality settings – gamers today want to play at 1080p or greater resolutions with high image quality. We therefore want to see if there any major differences between the AMD FX9590 system @ 5ghz and our standard Core i7 3960x gaming system which is overclocked to 4.4ghz. Both systems are using the high end ASUS GTX780 Direct CU II OC graphics card.
The FX9590 system scores a little lower in the minimum frame rate result, but in real world terms it wouldn’t be noticeable. Not at these settings anyway.
