Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.0 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 = High
- Tesselation = Normal
- Measurement = FPS
Higher = Better
The GTS 450 cards deliver a higher score than the HD 5750 in this test on the tessellation strengths of the Fermi architecture. The SLI scaling once again is impressive from just under 100% to an even 100% depending on the test. The GTS 250 is not tested in this benchmark as it does not have DirectX 11 support.
