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
Performance in the Heaven benchmark would lead to the assumption that the 5770 did poorly, but you must take into consideration that it has half the power of a 5870 card and the scores reflect that. Not bad at all, and those scores are what should be expected from a 5770. These are just some of the most powerful offerings right now from AMD and NVIDIA.
