MSI GTX 770 Gaming Testing:
Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark 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.
- 8x AA
- Tesselation = Extreme
- Measurement = FPS
At 1920x1080 the HD 7970 is dead even with the MSI GTX 770 Gaming while at 5760x1080 again the 6GB frame buffer helps it out.
Again we see all of the cards drop at around the 20% mark of the run in both resolutions. The frame times for each of the cards look pretty tight throughout the runs but we start to see a lot of higher frame times mostly around the transitions in the benchmark.
