Testing:

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.

 

Settings

  • 4xAA
  • 16xAF
  • Shaders = High
  • Tessellation = Moderate
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

Sitting around $100 cheaper than the other cards here, these numbers are doubly impressive and definitely show the efficiencies of the architecture.
