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.
Firstly we are running this benchmark with all cards at their ‘out of the box’ reference clock settings.
The HD5770’s have the edge here with an 11fps frame rate advantage, it is also noticed in ‘real world’ terms with overall frame rate smoothness.
