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

  • 4xAA
  • 16xAF
  • Shaders = High
  • Tesselation = Normal
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

The Unigine 2.1 benchmark scoring puts the Black Edition at the lower end of the spectrum, but it delivers a performance well above that of the last gen HD 5750 by 10 FPS when overclocked at the 2560x1600 resolution.
