NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 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 this point in the results there are no real surprises when we get to them. The GTX 760 is dead even with the HD 7950 in this test at 1920x1080 and has a 2FPS margin above the GTX 660Ti.
Frame times are relatively tight with the exception of the GTX 760 that wanders up high for much of the first part of the test. This shows up clearly as you watch the benchmark. Each card has the same drops during the benchmark during transitions. At 5760x1080 there is a second drop just past the 80% mark.
