This is one of the first games to embrace tessellation, though it is primarily applied only to the Alien model. It still is a good looking game, and the benchmark features dozens of these tessellated aliens flitting happily about the scene at once. Ultra settings were used with 4X AA and 16X AF enabled.
Here we see exactly how big of an improvement there is from the HD 5870 to the R6970. The HD 6950 is hanging just below the GTX 480, but in this particular benchmark the R6970 is the top dog.
