    Phoronix: Unigine Heaven Shows What Linux Gaming Can Look Like

    Our friends over at Unigine Corp love to push the bounds of graphics realism in their Unigine Engine, which continues to be one of the most advanced commercial game engines, and right now is certainly the most advanced game engine for Linux. While there are not many game studios actually shipping products based on Unigine's technology right now, Unigine Corp is known for producing a couple technology demos and working with us on the Phoronix Test Suite. Their Unigine Sanctuary benchmark was phenomenal, their Unigine Tropics benchmark was even better yet and set a new Linux OpenGL precedent, and now Unigine Heaven takes it unbelievably further. Today Unigine Corp is finally unveiling the Linux version of Unigine Heaven with its OpenGL 3.2 renderer. We have had our hands on a pre-release copy of Unigine Heaven and so now we are able to share our thoughts on this impressive benchmark / tech demo along with performance numbers for an assortment of ATI / NVIDIA graphics cards.

    Finally everybody can test it on Linux not only Phoronix. I really hated that it was delayed over and over again and not even mails revealed till when the casual users have to wait for it. I really want to see Tessellation on Linux too, can't be the case that you should need Win for it

    Just ran it on max detail on a 250GTS. Looks good, suffers from a strange micro stutter while running on my system but that could be the NV beta drivers.

    You are lucky that it even starts. That's definitely not always the case. Thats the problem when a system is not tested by others. It runs with Kanotix 64, but funnyly only the x86 binary.
