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.

  • Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.1
    • Extreme Settings: (High Quality, Normal Tessellation, 16x AF, 4x AA)

Cost Analysis: Unigine Heaven (1680x1050)

  • $129.99 HIS Radeon iCooler HD 7750 costs $5.68 per FPS
  • $119.99 GeForce GTX 450 costs $5.91 per FPS
  • $119.99 MSI GeForce GTX 550-Ti costs $5.12 per FPS
  • $139.99 GeForce GTX 460 costs $4.59 per FPS
  • $109.99 Radeon HD5770 costs $6.07 per FPS
  • $149.99 Radeon HD6850 costs $6.07 per FPS
  • Test Summary: Unigine heaven is also quite hard on video cards, only the best video cards will be able to run it smooth at the highest settings, certain parts of this benchmark put more work on the GPU than others. Scaling is as expected in the line-up, which is one thing Heaven does well. The higher core count of the GTX 460 GPU certainly makes a lot of difference in our tests.

    In the following sections we will report our findings on power consumption and overclocking.

    Your specs on the 550ti are wrong has the same amount cores as a 450 and not 256bit bus
