Benchmark: Aliens vs. Predator

The standalone Aliens vs. Predator benchmark uses DX11 features such as hardware tessellation and advanced shadow sampling to draw and animate everyone's favourite xenomorph.

3DMark's synthetic results are reflected in real-world gaming, as Aliens vs. Predator puts PowerColor's 6870 X2 comfortably ahead of the pricier GeForce GTX 580.

CrossFire scaling in this title is excellent, and 6870 X2 performance is keen. Though, it's hard to ignore the fact that two standalone 6870s configured in CrossFire offer practically identical results at a lower cost.
