Unigine Superposition GPU Benchmark (OpenGL / Direct3D) Tested




Unigine Superposition GPU Benchmark

1 – Overview

Ecco fatto, the Unigine team has released their new graphics benchmark called Superposition. Superposition is a graphics benchmark tool for Windows and Linux and offers OpenGL (4.5?) and Direct3D (11/12?) graphics tests (I found weird that the version of Direct3D is no specified in Superposition website nor in the docs…). Vulkan is not available but is planned…

The main features of Superposition are:
– Top-notch visuals powered by UNIGINE 2 Engine
– Extreme hardware stability testing
– GPU temperature and clock monitoring
– Unique ​SSRTGI (Screen-Space Ray-Traced Global Illumination) dynamic lighting technology
– VR experience (Oculus Rift and HTC Vive)
– Free exploration mode with mini-games
– Over 900 interactive objects
– Global leaderboards integration 

You can download Superposition from the homepage: Superposition Benchmark.

Before the test, here are some screenshots of the benchmark (high resolution screenshots are available HERE):

3 – Benchmark

Testbed:
– Intel Core i5 4670K @ 3.4GHz
– RAM: 16GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
– GIGABYTE G1.Sniper M5
– Windows 10 64-bit
– NVIDIA R381.65 and AMD Crimson 17.3.2

I will update the comparative table later with other GPUs (benchmarking takes time!).

A thread for Superposition benchmark is available HERE.

    Perhaps you guys could let Unigine know their use of insecure SSL symbols in their compiled Qt stack hangs their massive benchmark indefinitely with Debian Linux who strips out outdated and insecure symbols of SSL from their Qt compiles.

    Fun times;
