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. This time round, we've updated the benchmark to the latest edition, version 4.0.
The Titan was again impressive, outperforming our single GPU cards by as much as 65% while trailing the dual-GPU setups by just 15-20% on average.
Valley is a new benchmark from Unigine that renders a highly detailed seamless landscape covering a total area of 64,000 square kilometers. It also utilizes dynamic sky effects, volumetric clouds, sun shafts, DOF, and ambient occlusion.
We saw a similar result to "Heaven" with the Titan performing about 60% better than the GTX 680 and HD 7970 GHz Edition while trailing the GTX 690 and HD 7970 GHz Edition CrossFireX setup by about 15-20%.
