Testing:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.5 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark out 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.

 

Settings

  • 4x AA
  • 16x AF
  • Shaders = High
  • Tesselation = Normal
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

Both the HD6950s are neck and neck with the XFX6970 in the 2560x1600 overclocked testing when it came down to the Unigine 2.5 benchmark. However, at stock speeds, both of them are getting results right below the GTX560Ti .
