Testing:

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.

 

Settings

  • 4xAA
  • 16xAF
  • Shaders = High
  • Tesselation = Normal
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

   

   

   

Higher = Better

 

Even when overclocked, the ASUS GTX 580 cannot keep up with the dual GPUs under the lid of the HD 5970. However, it does reduce the FPS margin with the increased clock speeds applied.
