DX11: Unigine Heaven 2.1

The Unigine Heaven 2.1 benchmark is a free publicly available tool that grants the power to unleash the graphics capabilities in DirectX-11 for Windows 7 or updated Vista Operating Systems. 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 extend and exhibiting the possibilities of enriching 3D gaming.

The distinguishing feature in the Unigine Heaven 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.

Although Heaven-2.1 was recently released and used for our DirectX-11 tests, the benchmark results were extremely close to those obtained with Heaven-1.0 testing. Since only DX11-compliant video cards will properly test on the Heaven benchmark, only those products that meet the requirements have been included.

2 GTX-470 = 2 X 1280 RAM = 2560(AROUND)
2 GTX-560 = 2 X 1000 RAM = 2000

CAN TWO GT-560 STILL BEAT TWO GTX-470?

first off, ram in a graphics card doesn't determine performance. having said that, two 560 ti will most definitely beat out two gtx 470

When you put two cards in SLI or crossfire you dont double the memory. The memory on the second card is lost Be aware of what you write, there is a lot of misinformation on the subject.

it is not personnal.. :)

Sli/Xfire will double the bus to the memory though. The memory isn't lost, its just stacked. For example 1gb 256 bit plus 1gb 256 bit=1gb 512 bit(in theory). So one card doesn't have its memory shut off, both memory sets are working on the sharing the load.

One mistake made in this review.A 6970 should have been thrown into the mix,seeing as how it only takes a simple bios flash to turn a 6950 into 6970.

That wasn't a mistake at all. How do you justify comparing a $370 video card against one that costs $250?

How much is a GTX 570 in your American dollars? and flashing a 6950 to a 6970 costs no money...

You guys don't get it?A 6970 should be thrown into the mix because you can reach that exact same level of performance out of a 6950 with a bios flash and a slight overclock.This would give you a better Comparison of the difference in value between the 6950 and the gtx 570.
