Powercolor Devil R9 270X 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
Performance in this tessellation heavy test has the Devil R9 270X performing above the comparison R9 270X, the Devil HD 7870 and GTX 660.
In this test the frame time seem to have more variability across the range of the test when compared with the results of the comparison cards.
