Unigine Valley 1.0 Graphics Benchmark Released



Unigine Valley 1.0 Available for Windows, Linux and OS X



Few days after Heaven 4.0, Unigine Corps publishes its new graphics benchmark Valley for Windows, Linux and OSX:

Valley Benchmark is a new GPU stress-testing tool from the developers of the very popular and highly acclaimed Heaven Benchmark. The forest-covered valley surrounded by vast mountains amazes with its scale from a bird’s-eye view and is extremely detailed down to every leaf and flower petal. This non-synthetic benchmark powered by the state-of-the art UNIGINE Engine showcases a comprehensive set of cutting-edge graphics technologies with a dynamic environment and fully interactive modes available to the end user.

You can download Valley 1.0 from this page.





As usual, I did a quick test with a GTX 680 and a HD 7970. I don’t understand why the presets of Valley benchmark (same thing for Heaven 4.0) are not in fullscreen but it doesn’t matter, custom settings are fortunately available!

Testbed and graphics drivers:
- Radeon HD 7970: Catalyst 13.1 WHQL.
- GeForce GTX 680: R313.96.

I don’t know how to interpret the bad OpenGL score of the Radeon card… Unigine engine ? Catalyst 13.1 ? …
