i have great news about an updated (from 3.0) very good OpenGL Benchmark!
Whats new (since last 3.0):
What's New in Heaven 4.0?
- Benchmarking presets for convenient comparison of results
- GPU temperature and clock monitoring
- Drastic improvement of SSDO
- Stars at nighttime
- Improvement of lens flares
- New, improved version of UNIGINE Engine under the hood
- Detection of multiple GPUs
- Anti-aliasing support on Mac OS X
- Enhancement of automation scripts in Pro version
- New Advanced edition (see details below)
- Russian and Chinese localization
This benchmark benches GPU good and long under 26 scenes (takes a few minutes)
My screenshoots shows 9600 GT, Preset BASIC (medium, 1280x720, windowed, AA*2)
Because the different possible settings makes it hard to compare already benched GPUs,PLEASE
post at least also an Preset BASIC bench with
Preset BASIC (medium, 1280x720, windowed, AA*2)
to compare other users with smaller screens (not able to run 1600x1020 or 1900x1200 res).
Users with more screen res ( i am limited to 1440 ) and faster gpu can also post Preset Extreme result
EDIT Results from 4.0 will be NOT comparable to 3.0 results!.
Sapphire Radeon HD 7970, BASIC (no AA) = 98,5 fps, BASIC = 91 ( but known artifacts)
MacPro, Nvidia GTX 680 , OS X 10.8.2 : BASIC=88 fps, EXTREME=57fps (rob from barefeats, EXTREME takes around 850 MB VRAM)
EVGA GTX 660 2GB, 10.8.2, BASIC = 65 fps, BASIC with Ultra Quality = 49 fps
Asus GTX275. BASIC = 34,5 fps
Nvidia 9600 GT, 10.8.3 D68: BASIC=21fps
GeForce GT 430, BASIC = 16 fps
I added 2 new and BIG gpu tests. COD + PREY in highres (1900x1080) tests over 100 gpus!
Good to take a look if you want to buy a "new" gpu.
Often new gpus are much worse (in fps) than oldies like 9600 GT / 8800 GT / 9800 GT or AMD 5770.
Example: GT 430 or GT 210/220/230/520 - good in power consumption but worse compared to above listed old+cheap (used) gpus.
Only avoid old 8800 GTX / GTS and 9800 GTX - fast but huge power consumption. Also AMD 4870/50 takes huge power consumption.
