4 – ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU II Direct3D Tests


4.1 Unigine Heaven (DirectX 11)

OpenGL tests have been finished on Unigine Heaven, what a better transition than starting Direct3D tests with Unigine Heaven 2.1, this time using the Direct3D 11 render path.

OpenGL 4 - Unigine Heaven 2.1



Settings: 1920×1080 fullscreen, tessellation: normal, shaders: high, 4X MSAA, 16X anisotropic filtering.

47.9 FPS, Scores: 1208 – EVGA GTX 580 SC
47.6 FPS, Scores: 1200 – ASUS ENGTX580
42.9 FPS, Scores: 1081 – SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6970
41.6 FPS, Scores: 1048 – ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU II
39.4 FPS, Scores: 991 – EVGA GeForce GTX 480
38.8 FPS, Scores: 979 – ASUS Radeon HD 6950 DC2
38.3 FPS, Scores: 966 – ASUS Radeon HD 6950
36.6 FPS, Scores: 9211 – ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP
26.8 FPS, Scores: 674 – ATI Radeon HD 5870
25.9 FPS, Scores: 653 – ASUS EAH6870
25.3 FPS, Scores: 637 – SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870

16.6 FPS, Scores: 419 – MSI R5770 Hawk
9.8 FPS, Scores: 247 – ASUS GT 440

Remark: there is an important bottleneck in OpenGL driver because the Heaven Direct3D 11 score is nearly twice the OpenGL 4 one…

    I think you should test this card with EVGA OC Scanner (the one I modified) just to check the real artifact-free OC.

    hi.. i wanna buy this card..i got a core 2 quad 3.0 ghz.. i have a 750 watt antec power supply.. will it be okay ?

  4. Wisico

    Is it normal that my card when it pass the 60% fan speed (with afterburner) it start to make a loud noise?? :O
    But there is Nothing In the fan…
    What should I do??

  5. JEswe

    Mark Lev yes youre setup will run this card.
    Wisico youre card is probebly geting hot and protecting the GPU or you got dust in there.
    :)

  6. Chris

    what are those slots on the front with the plastic covers?
    should I connect them to anything?
    I got a small flat cable with my card
    but I dont understand where to put it?
    plese help!

    I’m not sure what I’m missing here. I recently got my hands on one of these cards and knew it was going to be a true force to be reckoned with. While playing Skyrim with the high res pac I get jumpy frames 60fps-0fps; Yet my hardware isn’t even trying! (the fan speed stays the same and the temp never rises) I’m confused why it’s holding back! I’ve played Crysis 2 DX11 and Arkham City on full specs without a problem – why little DX10 Skyrim has low frames I’m baffled. I was going to save the benchmarking until I was able to finish my build off with 8 more gigs of ram and an SSD but the recent speedbump in gaming brought me to it early. I was astounded how low I was ranking, to say the least. >=( Furmark was the first and I’m about to try unigine and 3dmark and probably be twice as disappointed.

    I was wondering how the numbers here and on every other benchmark were attained with less of an overclock than I even have, when I haven’t touched overclocking yet since I wasn’t worried until now! furmark put me at just over 2,000 (36FPS) >=(!!!
    Hardware: (everything @ stock specifications)
    i5 2500k @3.3GHz w/ a Zalman fan cooler
    Asus P8Z68-V Pro mobo
    2 4GB corsair vengeance @ 9-9-9-24
    1080W PS

    >>>And yes, I forgot to mention, I have the updated drivers. Even the Nvidia one specifically for the Skyrim high res pack.

  9. Brad

    Hello nick, dont have any experiance with your card, but running skyrim on full specs with all the GFX and hi res mods, on a setup less powerfull than yours. The only thing I had to do is patch the main executable so it allows more then 2GB ram usage. Try doing that there are guides online, let us know how you get on.

    Thank’s! please add Assassin’s Creed II Gaming benchmark!
    Thank’s Again!
