Aliens vs. Predator
We fired up Aliens vs Predator D3D11 Benchmark v1.03 which is a standalone benchmark test based upon Rebellion’s 2010 inter-species shooter Aliens vs. Predator. The test shows multiple scenes from one to many Aliens using heavy tessellation among other nice DX11 features.
We ran the test at both 2560 x 1600 and 1920 x 1200 with all the settings set to the maximum to see how this entry level GTX500 series card from ZOTAC would perform at its maximum resolution and a more common size.
Not surprisingly this card did not achieve a playable 30+ FPS score at either resolution even though this is a factory overclocked card. This would require turning down the eye candy a bit on a typical 24″ monitor running at 1920 x 1200 to get the frame rate above 30 FPS which is more than reasonable given where this card sits in the NVIDIA GTX500 line up.
