ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black Video Card ReviewFri, Sep 24, 2010 - 12:00 AM
Aliens vs Predator Benchmark v1.03
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.
Because the test uses a great deal of tessellation and is very graphically intense, I used 4x Anisotropic Filtering and 4x AntiAliasing so it is at least somewhat close to playable on the HD 5670.
A little tougher on the lower end cards, Aliens vs Predator had the mix crossfire configuration 1 FPS higher than the GTX 460 at a staggering 38FPS on the low resolution. If you consider the mix-fire to be a 5850 (which, in reality, is just slightly faster than the mix on average), the ECS GTX 460 1GB is proving to be worth its $229 price tag!
