NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 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 GTX 780 has a substantial performance increase over the HD 7970 that shrinks up as you get to 5760x1080 where the 6GB of onboard memory surely is helping it out.
With all four cards tested we see the same FPS drop as we hit the 20% mark of the run. The frame times for each of the cards look pretty tight throughout the runs at 1920x1080 yet the GTX 680 starts to have troubles at 5760x1080.
