Unigine 'Heaven' DX11
The 'Heaven' benchmark that uses the Unigine easily shows off the full potential of DirectX 11 graphics cards. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. With the interactive mode emerging, experience of exploring the intricate world is within reach. Through its advanced renderer, Unigine is one of the first to set precedence in showcasing the art assets with tessellation, bringing compelling visual finesse, utilizing the technology to the full extent and exhibiting the possibilities of enriching 3D gaming. The distinguishing feature of the benchmark is a hardware tessellation that is a scalable technology aimed for automatic subdivision of polygons into smaller and finer pieces so that developers can gain a more detailed look of their games almost free of charge in terms of performance. Thanks to this procedure, the elaboration of the rendered image finally approaches the boundary of veridical visual perception: the virtual reality transcends conjured by your hand.
For this benchmark VSync was turned off and we tested with 0x AA and 4x AF to check out system performance. We also ran the benchmark at 1920x1200 and 1280x1024 to see how the benchmark ran at some different monitor resolutions.
Benchmark Results: This benchmark result chart only shows AMD graphics cards since you must be DirectX 11 compatible to run this test. ATI has nine different DX11 enabled video cards that can run this benchmark and as you can see performance goes up gradually across the ATI Radeon HD 5000 series of graphics cards. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 is hands down better than the Radeon HD 5450, which is the entry level DirectX 11 graphics card and is the slowest of the bunch.
