Unigine Heaven and Valley Tests

Based on the Unigine game engine, the Unigine benchmarks offer 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 Radeon HD 7990 GPU continues to tear up the turf in the Unigine tests, outstripping the VIRTUE’s GTX 780 GPU, which again scored lower than the AVADirect system with its Titan.
