Unigene Heaven DX11 Benchmark

Recently Unigine produced the fantastic Heaven Benchmark. Based around a ficticious floating village the benchmark makes full use of the Direct X 11 API, most notably with the implementation of Hardware Tesselation. The test was carried out with three different Anti Alising & Anisotrophic Filtering configurations. 

Given a resolution of 1920x1200, these results are respectable for a graphics card of it's calibre. It is however interesting to note that the use of Anti Aliasing results in very hefty performance penalties in this benchmark. Unsurprisingly, we expect this trend to continue in games of similar complexity.

The graphics card's GPU Core overclock also appeared to make a significant difference across the board.

Futuremark 3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is Futuremarks flagship gaming oriented benchmark at present and is considered to be a demanding one at that. We ran the benchmark in all three modes : Performance (P), High (H) and eXtreme (X).

While the HD 5770 holds its own under Performance and High presets, it begins to show it's weaknesses in eXtreme mode. Roughly 5-10% gains were achieved from our GPU overclock.

Nice looking card (cheerful) but it would be nice if you could give us a power chart so people can compare power consumption with the 460 being that the HD 5770 main advantage over the 460 is its lower power consumption.

Roffle, they're totally ripped off the Ares cooler. It's nice though
