NVIDIA Island Tessellation Demo
NVIDIA recently (May 8th) released two tech demo’s for their DirectX11 GPU’s. The Island demo features customizable hardware tessellation and would make a stellar benchmark if it offered a framerate logger, but Fraps can do that just fine so let’s take a look at the settings used.
Island Demo was run in fullscreen mode at 1440×900 as well as 1920×1080, with a dynamic tessellation LOD of 10, and all the other bells and whistles were enabled. The demo opens by default at the same scene with camera movement disabled.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen bench results that linear between cards. There is not much to say aside from mix-crossfire being an awesome technology and the XFX HD 5770 has a clear lead over the reference HD 5750, where the difference is not so significant in other tests.
