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

  • 0xAA
  • 0xAF
  • Shaders = Low
  • Tesselation = Off
  • Measurement = FPS
  • DX 10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

Overall a decent entry-level showing, but overclocking shows almost no gain.
