Testing:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.5 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.

 

Settings

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

The Sapphire and XFX HD 7950s deliver FPS almost on par with the HD 7970 when overclocked. The differential between the last generation and the current Southern Islands Tahiti core are significant.
