Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.1 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 = Low
- Tesselation = Off
- Measurement = FPS
Higher = Better
Perhaps Unigine uses the increased memory more effectively than games in the other tests, as the results here are rather different. Overclocking yielded minimal results for the Axle card.
