MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II OC Video Card ReviewWed, Mar 23, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Aliens vs. Predator
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.
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 on all the video cards.
Benchmark Results: The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5/OC performed 6% faster than the NVIDIA reference design in AvP at a resolution of 1280×1024 with all the eye candy turned up. The ASUS Ultimate GeForce GTX 550-Ti was 9% faster than the reference card, but costs $25 more. As you can see at higher resolutions like 1920×1200 the card doesn’t do too hot, but remember this is a $150 gaming card!
