Graphics card performance
Unigine, known from their 3D engine and benchmarks like heaven and valley have released a new benchmark, Superposition. The software allows you to test their game engine and outputs scores and frame-rates for you to compare to.
The benchmark will run on the Unigine-2 engine. The test runs through a classroom that a professor uses for quantum-mechanics.There's an explosion, but the professor is nowhere to be found. You have the only chance to cast some light upon this incident by going deeply into the matter of quantum theory: thorough visual inspection of professor's records and instruments will help to lift the veil on the mystery.
- Top-notch visuals powered by
- Global leaderboards for benchmark scores
- Stress load for the GPU heating system
- Scalable quality settings
- VR mode (Oculus Rift and HTC Vive)
- Free interactive mode with mini-games
- Support for Windows and Linux
This benchmark can be effectively used to determine the stability of PC hardware under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system's potential under maximum heat output. Compare your hardware scores with other users worldwide after the benchmark is released April 11th on both Windows and Linux.
Unigine allows you to run the benchmark in several performance modes ranging from Low Quality upwards to Ultra, Extreme and even more complex settings. Also a custom benchmark run can be created with a limited number of settings and resolutions.
Unigine is compatible with the DirectX 11 and/or OpenGL 4.5 APIs. The current builds do not offer support for APIs like DirectX 12 and Vulkan, which is a bit of a miss in our believe. If you purchase the benchmark, a VR test will open up as well. I ran Superposition with roughly 15 graphics cards with tested over the performance modes and then picked the extreme mode as default test for future graphics card reviews. There is even an 8K 7680x4320 mode available.
One the next page we'll show you a number of test-results. We ran a couple of benchmarks, first we took a GeForce GTX 1070 and plotted the Low to Ultra HD settings to observe what that does towards performance.
