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

 

At stock settings we saw the ASUS HD 6970 come in just under the GTX 580. Overclocking the card gave us a decent performance boost, but not enough to boost its position in the charts.
