Aliens VS Predator, a DirectX 11 game, gives us our first look at the performance of Sapphires 6850 Toxic and how it compares to the GTX 460 OC, a product with a similar price level. In this test we see a set of results where the Radeon and GeForce perform at similar levels on average framerate however the Sapphire card has a significantly higher minimum framerate which stays above 25fps, providing us with smooth gameplay. The GTX 460 on the other hand drops to 19fps which causes a noticeable stutter in gameplay at these settings.
