Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. What sets the Heaven Benchmark apart is the addition of hardware tessellation, available in three modes; Moderate, Normal and Extreme. Although tessellation requires a video card with DirectX 11 support and Windows Vista/7, the Heaven Benchmark also supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and OpenGL. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.
- Shaders = High
- Tesselation = Normal
- Measurement = FPS
Higher = Better
One of the strengths of the GF100 architecture is its tessellation performance. Throughout the resolutions, the GTX 465 kept pace with the HD 5850, two resolutions it gave a higher level of performance higher and two in which it performed lower. When both the HD 5850 and GTX 465 are overclocked, the strengths of the GF100 architecture are clear.
