In my final paragraph, I'd like to say the same thing I said in my 3DMark article - I want to see more social integration in these benchmarks.
Unigine should include some ladder that threads into Facebook, as it would not only bring users together - but it would bring users (and thus, consumers) into the same loop as the overclockers. This would compound into more business for companies as users would want more hardware like the enthusiasts use to break world records. This is all on top of Heaven being more social, which is always a good thing.
The power of the benchmark has always been the same - to stress out your system as much as possible. Heaven does just that.
All Unigine need to do is continue on this path, and doing their usual little changes to Heaven to enjoy their position in the benchmarking market. I found Heaven stressed out my rig more than other benchmarks, having to play with my overclocks more than I usually do, too.
I'd like to see the next iteration of Heaven stress systems even more, cranking up the detail in the tessellation and maybe moving away from the themed island we have now and into something different.
