Gigabyte G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 970 4GB Review (Page 11 of 13)

Page 11 - Benchmark: Unigine: Heaven 4.0

Unigine's Heaven 4.0 shows users what the company's game engine is capable of. Originally released in 2009, one of the biggest features of Unigine is its advanced OpenGL 4.0 and DirectX 11 renderer. This is an excellent benchmark, because there are over one hundred Unigine licenses used for development at press time. For our tests, we left it at its maximum settings of 8xAA and 16xAF, using tessellation as its only manipulated variable to measure the respective performance of the tested graphics cards. The average frame rate is shown in our charts above. As expected, the $360 Gigabyte G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 970 4GB performed very well; it was also slightly faster than the stock configured NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970.
