Unigine Heaven and Valley Tests

Based on the Unigine game engine, the Unigine Heaven and Valley benchmarks 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.

With the Unigine tests, the Falcon Northwest Tiki returned to battling the AVADirect Mini PC, landing just behind it in most cases. The frame rates in Valley test are particularly close between the two; both system pummel rigs that were tested with (slightly) older NVIDIA graphics cards.
