New benchmark grants the power to unleash the DirectX 11 potential in the gift wrapping of impressively towering graphics capabilities. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. With the interactive mode emerging experience of exploring the intricate world is ensured within reach. Through its advanced renderer, Unigine is one of the first to set precedence in showcasing the art assets with tessellation, bringing compelling visual finesse, utilizing the technology to the full extend and exhibiting the possibilities of enriching 3D gaming.

 

Note: If a card doesn't support DirectX 11 the benchmark will be left out. If it does it will be included along with the DirectX 10 results.

Looking at the first of our new benchmarks, we again see the same small increase in performance when compared to the stock model. It doesn't come as too much of a surprise once again since we're only dealing with a slight overclock.

We can see compared to the DX 10 test the numbers are down. Again, though, that small performance increase from the Vapor-X is extremely consistent which is something we like to see.
