Aliens vs. Predator (AvP) is an FPS title from Rebellion Studios. It allows players to take on the role of either an Alien, a Predator or a human space marine. While the title received mixed reviews, it is a DX11 graphics powerhouse that can bring many machines to their knees. The demo follows a number of Alien creatures, and makes extensive use of shaders and tessellation. Hitting 60fps on a Core i7-920 requires a pair of ATI Radeon HD 5870 E6's in CrossFire.

3x1 Eyefinity configurations cut fps by about 2.5x from the single panel performance. While moving to a five panel setup ads 66% more pixels, performance is only reduced by about 33%.
