    Default Unigine Heaven 2.0 Linux Performance

    Phoronix: Unigine Heaven 2.0 Linux Performance

    Yesterday the 2.0 release of the Unigine Heaven tech demo was released for Microsoft Windows users. This Windows release was greeted finally by the OpenGL Linux release of this impressive demo too. While we had published benchmarks and screenshots of the Unigine Heaven Linux release, this was based off of an internal build that we had received from Unigine Corp back in December -- long before the 2.0 release came about with its optimizations, updated engine, and new artwork. Due to this, we have now published a new set of Unigine Heaven performance numbers for Linux from a selection of ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards along with many new screenshots.

    Tesselation is also possible on ATI with:
    Code:
    <item name="gl_render_use_amd_vertex_shader_tessellator" type="int">1</item>
    in data/heaven_2.0.cfg

    OFF

    ON

    OFF

    ON

    OFF

    ON

    OFF

    ON


    Movement is not really easy however with mouse. A tiny bit better is using the cursor keys especially with that low framerate.

    My nvidia 8800 GTS 512 box compared against the GTX 275:

    No, used an ATI HD 4550 which is really slow. But below 1024x768 screenshots do not really look good. The benchmarks ran on another system.

    Similarly slow on my HD5850 actually. Well the max fps are better, but the min fps are terrible. Trying to install the Ubuntu beta drivers to see how that works out.

    "These results show that you also really need a Radeon HD 4700 series graphics card or greater for this game to be playable."

    @michael

    Maybe you should click on Camera. Also now you can use Tesselation with your card and you are still not happy?

    Thanks Kano to find this setting for AMD Tessellation. This work fine with my 5770, fglrx 10.2.
    But this is slow, about 8 fps in 1280x1024 for the dragon place view.
    To recover some frame rate I need to click the Tessellation button and set Factor and Distance to 0.6. With this setting the effect is still nice at 20 fps.

    Well the Ubuntu beta drivers turn the benchmark into a psychedelics show

    Na they work, it's just that ATI owners that use linux have to be on hallucinogens. Sorry, just too good of a setup to resist.
