Digital Storm Vanquish II (Level 4) Gaming PC Review

Unigine Heaven Benchmarks

A note on the systems we used in the following tests: We're updating many of our game benchmarks, and as we're building our test bank, we're using scores from the test rig we built to test a slew of graphics cards--hence the "HH Test System" label. That system includes an EVGA X79 Dark motherboard, Intel Core i7-4960X CPU, and 16GB of Corsair DDR3-1866 RAM.

Further note that for the same reason--our updating of our spate of benchmarks and are rebuilding our bank of test systems--the Digital Storm Vanquish II is a little out of its league compared to other systems we’re comparing it to.

Unigine Heaven Benchmark
DX11 Gaming

Unigine's Heaven Benchmark v4.0 is built around the Unigine game engine. Unigine is a cross-platform, real-time 3D engine, with support for DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 and OpenGL. The Heaven benchmark--when run in DX11 mode--also makes comprehensive use of tessellation technology and advanced SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion). It also features volumetric cumulonimbus clouds generated by a physically accurate algorithm and a dynamic sky with light scattering.

Considering that the Vanquish II is up against systems with significantly better processors and more GPU horsepower in almost every case, the system fared pretty well. In the FPS portion of Unigine Heaven it hit a solid average of 42 and a max of 99.4, while its overall score wasn’t too far off the couple of systems above, all things considered.
