MSI N460GTX 1GD5 Cyclone 1GB Review

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.

The HD5850 is leading the pack by a few frames per second, but the Cyclone 1GB MSI board is surprisingly close behind, this is the first 460 card we have tested which has been able to maintain a solid 25fps+ frame rate with this engine at these settings.

However, early reports seem to point to cooling issues when bringing older AIO coolers to the LGA1700 platform.
