My System Specs

Default Unigine Heaven 2.0 Benches

Looks like we have another decent GPU Benchmark App.....knew it has been around awhile but decided to run it and compare some numbers to the new Fermi Cards, although DX 10 not DX 11....feel free to Post up some Benches....
Download, Install n Run it....for comparison, DX11 Cards try a DX10 run ;)

|MG| Heaven Benchmark 2.0 Download

My Settings:

DX 10
1920 x 1200
8X AA 16X AF
All Other Graphic Options enabled (Maxed out for DX 10)

GTX 280 SLI OC'ed to 705 / 1458 / 1250 - I7 920 CO Stepping @ 3.83Ghz
Fan @ 75% Manual
Max Temps
GPU 1: 75c
GPU 2: 67c




Still great Cards...soon to be replaced though...

Gotta love the spread between max and min.

When you expect your new cards?

Hopefully they'll be available for "Order" next week or the week after....elected to wait until after the 1st batch....

The Min Frames is an odd one.....I noticed folks with Fermi Cards (single or SLi) running DX11 Extreme Tess are also getting Min 8 - 9 FPS, BUT the Min are not noticeable at all during the Bench, I think it happens right at the beginning while still loading....

There really is no point in running a DX10 version of the heaven benchmark. The main selling point or usage for this benchmark was to show the Comprehensive use of tessellation technology on DX11 GPUs.

Why not.?....for those of us that still don't have a DX11 GPU this is a great GPU Benchmark Test with DX10....it certainly taxes my 2 x 280's....

So....lets see some Bench runs on ANY GPU config with DX10 (no Tess) or DX11..

Thanks for that "informative" Post 5il...excellent news.

Only via a "DX 10 Hack".....hardly worth it...

I am glad that you find it "informative."

Congrats on running the first DirectX 11 benchmark on your gtx 280s

....DX10 mode 8x / 16x, ambient occlusion yada yad yada ..what you got.?...besides some useless comments ....why start "Thread Crapping"...your point has been made now kindly move on...


Back on topic.......if you've got DX11 Cards would like to see your Benches..if you've got DX10 Cards would love to see those as well....
