HIS HD 5850 iCooler V Turbo Review

Aliens vs Predator is an entirely new title for PC and high-definition consoles from acclaimed British developer Rebellion, the team behind the 1999 original PC gaming classic.  Bringing the most intense war between two of science-fiction’s most popular characters FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming. Experience distinctly new and thrilling first person gameplay as you survive, hunt and prey in the deadly jungles and swamps surrounding the damned colony of Freya’s Prospect.

As the Marine, you’ll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there’s never enough. However, the United States Marine Corps are humanity’s last line of defence, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry.

As the Predator, you will stalk from the shadows and from above, passing athletically through the treetops to ambush your victims. Although equipped with an array of powerful, exotic weapons and tracking equipment, honour ultimately dictates that you must get in close and take your trophies face to face.

As the most deadly species in the universe, the Alien offers you the chance to play as the very stuff of nightmares – the monster in the dark swarming forward with countless others, jaws like a steel trap and claws like blades.

Play all sides off against each other in a series of unique 3-way online modes and go tooth-to-claw-to-pulse rifle in the reinvention of one of multiplayer gaming’s defining moments.

To test the HIS 5850 iCooler V Turbo we will play some AVP at 1920×1200 with DX 11 Texture Quality on Very High, Shadow Complexity High, Tessellation on, ambient occulsion on, Motion Blur, MSAA Samples 1,  16af,. It should be interesting to see how the cards deal with this DX11 based shooter at the highest resolution our display allows.

This 5850 iCooler V Turbo performed very well in this game with our minimum FPS hitting 26 which is a few frames below our comfort zone of 30 FPS.  The vast majority of our testing was extremely smooth, averaging close to 43 frames per second with all the eye candy enabled and producing maximum frames rates of 73 FPS.
