Gigabyte GTX 460 OC SLi Review

Unigine is a top-notch technology, that can be easily adapted to various projects due to its elaborated software design and flexible toolset. A lot of our customers claim that they have never seen such an extremely-effective code, which is so easy to understand. It is already used in the development of different projects (mostly games).

Heaven Benchmark
is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on advanced Unigine engine from Unigine Corp. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. Interactive mode provides emerging experience of exploring the intricate world of steampunk.

  • Efficient and well-architected framework makes Unigine highly scalable:
  • Multiple API (DirectX 9 / DirectX 10 / DirectX 11 / OpenGL) render
  • Cross-platform: MS Windows (XP, Vista, Windows 7) / Linux
  • Full support of 32bit and 64bit systems
  • Multicore CPU support
  • Little / big endian support (ready for game consoles)
  • Powerful C++ API
  • Comprehensive performance profiling system
  • Flexible XML-based data structures

We always run the Heaven Benchmark at the same settings so all video card results are easily comparable. We run at 1080p resolution with other settings left to default. Shaders high, Tessellation normal, anisotrophy 4x and anti aliasing off.

nVidia cards have very strong tessellation performance and we can see with this benchmark that the SLI solution is almost sitting around 60fps average. If more games used tessellation right now nVidia would be in a very strong position.
