Aliens vs Predator D3D11 Benchmark v1.03 is a standalone benchmark test based upon Rebellion’s 2010 inter-species shooter Aliens vs. Predator. The test shows xenomorph-tastic scenes using heavy tessellation among other DX11 features. The benchmarks independent GUI was used for testing shown below.
Running the benchmark on the XFX Radeon HD 6950 we cranked up all the image quality settings in the benchmark to the highest level possible, so we were running 4x AA and 16x AF with SSAO enabled at both 1920×1080 and 1280×1024.
Benchmark Results: The AMD A8-5600K was able to hold its own in the Aliens Vs. Predator benchmark. Though it was much closer to the first generation AMD A8-3870K than we had hoped. The A8-5600K averaged 16.3 frames per second at 1280×1024 while the 3870K averaged 15.7, a difference of 3.8%. With the resolution increased to 1920×1080 the AMD A8-3870K was able to take a slight lead over the Trinity 5600K.
