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
In the Unigine benchmark, we saw the Palit GTX 570 Sonic Platinum's performance trend continue, at least until the 2560x1600 resolution. At this resolution, we saw it perform under the GTX 480, but once overclocked, it was once again able to perform on par with the HD 6970.
