New Heaven DX 11 Benchmark Available Today

Unigine released an improved version (3.0) of its renown Heaven DX11 Benchmark based on its proprietary UNIGINE™ engine. Great looking as ever and containing many technical improvements, it now runs on Mac and supports for variety of new hardware, including extended support for multi-monitor configurations.

A few years ago the graphical benchmarking tool used to test the performance of new video cards (GPU) was Crysis. But as technology progressed and video cards became more powerful using Crysis as a benchmarking tool became asinine.  Not to mention the fact that it wouldn’t be stress testing the new features that would’ve been created in new video cards. Things like DirectX 11 (DX 11) for example. Since that time, new and more powerful graphical testing utilities became available. Things like the Heaven Benchmark for example.  The Heaven Benchmark is a video cards worst nightmare, and is known to make cards overheat and just plain tap out.

 

What’s New?

  • Added Mac OS X version compatible with 10.7+ (no tessellation).
  • Added support for Intel HD 3000 GPU (no tessellation).
