Testing:

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.

 

Settings

  • 4xAA
  • 16xAF
  • Shaders = High

Unigine 2.1 is a benchmark that uses varying degrees of tessellation. This makes it an ideal benchmark to test DX 11 video cards and their tessellation performance. While the GTX 480 was strong and outperformed all the single GPU cards from AMD, the GTX 580 takes that performance to another level.
