Aliens vs. Predator, developed by Rebellion Developments, is a science fiction first-person shooter and is a remake of its 1999 game. The game is based off the two popular sci fi franchises. In this game, you have the option of playing through the single player campaigns as one of three species, the Alien, the Predator, and the Human Colonial Marine. The Game uses Rebellion's Asura game engine that supports Dynamic Lighting, Shader Model 3.0, Soft Particle systems, and Physics. To test this game I will be using the Aliens vs. Predator benchmark tool with the settings listed below. All DirectX 11 features are enabled.
- SSAO = On
- Texture Quality = Very High
- Hardware Tesselation = On
- Advanced Shadow Sampling = On
Higher = Better
In this first test, there is no doubt that AMD hit the mark with the HD 6990, and in this game it is the fastest single video card solution right now. When compared with the HD 6970 Crossfire and SLI solutions it performs almost identically to the HD 6970 Xfire, and sits right between the GTX 580 and GTX 570 SLI solutions.
