eVGA GTX460 FTW Review (versus Reference HD5870)

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 comparible throughout reviews.

The AMD HD5870 is able to deliver around 7-10 extra frames per second throughout most of our Alien V Predator testing. Clearly the hardware and drivers are more suited to this particular engine than the nVidia solution.
