Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.5 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark out to allow testing of DX 11 features. 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, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.
- 4x AA
- 16x AF
- Shaders = High
- Tesselation = Normal
- Measurement = FPS
In this benchmark, the Sapphire HD 6970 FleX Edition stays right in the middle of the results, swapping levels with the comparison HD 6970. Its numbers are also very comparable to the GTX 480.
