Sapphire HD5830 & HD5850 Xtreme Edition Review – CrossfireX

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.

With this particular engine, the HD5830 Xtreme Edition in CFx outperforms both the GTX580 AMP! Edition from Zotac and the HD6790 in CrossfireX. The HD5850 Xtreme in CFX scores around 15 fps more but fails to compete against the GTX590 which is a further 9fps ahead.
