Unigine Heaven and Valley Benchmarks

Based on the Unigine game engine, the Unigine Heaven and Valley benchmarks take users through dramatic 3D tours of exotic environments, complete with dynamic skies, tessellation, and SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion).

Unigine Heaven provides heavy tessellation use and a dynamic sky to stress modern graphics cards. The Valley benchmark, on the other hand, is loaded with vegetation. The benchmark tours a forest thick with flowers, boulders, and rivers. We ran the test at 1920 x 1080, on Ultra Quality and with the Extreme Tessellation option.  

The Bolt II’s scores in Heaven and Valley show the edge that the Devil’s Canyon processor gives to the system, even in benchmarks that weigh graphics chops more heavily than CPU performance.

We also provided the scores from our recent Maingear RUSH reviews to give you a sense of how the Bolt II compares to systems decked out with dual graphics cards. Although all single-card systems in this comparison are outgunned by the dual-card behemoths in graphics tests like this, the playing field levels in system-level benchmarks like PCMark, as you’ll see shortly.
