XFX Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950 Graphics Card Review

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 1920x1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. Maximum in-game settings were enabled.

Aliens Vs. Predator, a DirectX11 game, gives us our first look at the performance of AMD/XFX's new 6900 series and the initial results are promising. The 6950 sits at a level just above the GTX 570 and the same can be said of the 580/6970 comparison. If AMD were aiming to match NVIDIA's top two single GPU products with these new cards then, for AvP, they have succeeded.
