Heaven DX 11 Benchmark
The Heaven DX11
Benchmark is based on the powerful UNIGINE engine which was the world's
first DirectX 11 benchmark tool. Its been designed to benchmark graphic
cards that support DirectX 11 in order to benchmark all facets of the
cards features such as tessellation, crossfire technology and even 3D.
of all Heaven DX11 Benchmark can be tweaked to get the best performance
of your graphics card and Impulse Gamer recently tested this
benchmarking tool with a Sapphire HD 7970 Dual-X card from Achieva. Our
review can be found here.

and dragons that looks and sounds amazing.

Similar to 3DMark, Heaven DX11 Benchmark allows the user to tweak a
variety of settings from Shaders, Filters and Tessellation. By adjusting
this, it helps the user in finding the right optimisation for their
you have a card that can handle the default settings of this flyby demo,
then your graphics card definitely has the power to handle most modern
game titles well. Like 3DMark, Heaven DX11 Benchmark will give the user
a variety of scores on how well their card performed in the benchmark.

Another impressive feature is that you can tweak the
in-game settings such as the time of day and even a free roaming mode.
Nothing is more fun than roaming around this world or seeing it in
wireframes which is pure amazing.
relation to hardware tessellation, Heaven supports three modes of
benchmarking that include moderate which provides reasonable performance
and is ideal for older cards, normal which is good for midrange cards
and finally the extreme mode which targets the cream of the crop in
graphic cards. We tested this program on all three modes and our
Sapphire HD 7970 Dual-X handled most tests quite well.
if you're looking for a powerful benchmarking suite to test your latest
graphics card than look no further than Heaven DX11 Benchmark which
definitely takes your card through the extreme benchmark process.
It also looks gorgeous!
