Unigine 4.0 "Heaven" Results

Our updated Unigine's "Heaven" benchmark tests GPUs with extreme tessellation, dynamic sky with volumetric clouds, real-time global illumination, and screen-space ambient occlusion among others.

The GTX 780 performed in line with expectations, outperforming the Radeon HD 7970 and the GeForce GTX 680 by as much as 50% at the lowest settings while at the highest settings, its winning margin was pared slightly to 40 per cent.
