Aliens VS Predator – DirectX 11

Everyone is familiar with the Aliens VS Predator franchise, this time Sega have rebooted the licence taking over from Sierra. AVP is a DirectX 11 game, which means we have advanced shadow rendering and high-quality tessellation for compatible cards.

Testing was performed at 1920×1080 with 2x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. Maximum in-game settings were enabled.

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.
