Aliens Vs. Predator DirectX 11 Benchmark
Aliens vs Predator is an entirely new title for PC and high-definition consoles from acclaimed British developer Rebellion, the team behind the 1999 original PC gaming classic. Bringing the most intense war between two of science-fiction’s most popular characters FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming. Experience distinctly new and thrilling first person gameplay as you survive, hunt and prey in the deadly jungles and swamps surrounding the damned colony of Freya’s Prospect. 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.
When we run the Aliens Vs. Predator benchmark on the APU Graphics we leave the Texture quality and Shadow quality at low and leave the Anti-Aliasing off for both 1920×1200 and 1280×1024.
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 1920×1200 and 1280×1024.
Benchmark Results: The ASUS F1A75-V Pro didn’t deviate from the pack. When we fired up the benchmark on the Radeon HD 6550D on the A8-3850 it was able to average 26 frames per second at 1280×1024 and 18.2 frames per second at 1920×1080. This performance is right in the range we have seen previously. Firing up the Aliens Vs. Predator benchmark with our XFX Radeon HD 6950 we were easily able to crank the image quality settings to the maximum. At 1280×1024 the ASUS F1A75-V Pro was able to edge out the competition by .4 frames per second with an average of 55.9 frames per second. Increasing the resolution to 1920×1080 the F1A75-V Pro was able to average 41.3 frames per second which is right on par with our other boards.
