Zotac GTX 480 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.

The game was tested at  2560×1600 which is the resolution the high end target audience will utilise. All in game settings were maximised – which is exactly how high end gamers will want their GTX 480 gaming experience to be.

While the GTX 480 beats out the reference HD 5870, the overclocked XFX 5870 Black Edition comes out top in the results. When looking at the minimum frame rate results we can see that the GTX 480 struggles to maintain a steady flow over 25fps resulting in some juddery experiences at the given settings. The removal of AA or lowering the resolution to 1920×1200 would help to smooth out the overall gameplay experience.
