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.

 

DirectX 10

Looking at DirectX 10 performance, we can see the HD 5970 from Sapphire does a good job of taking out the GTX 295. But again it falls a little behind that HD 5870 CF setup.

 


DirectX 11

We again see some good scores when we move over to a DX11 mode. The results between the ATI cards are similar to what we saw in the DX10 one.
