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
The superior clocks of the ASUS card show as performance gains again in Unigine. All these cards test similarly, except the 5450. The GT 220 and GT 210 do not support DirectX 11, so they do not score.
