Synthetic: Unigine & 3DMark

Asus Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU

Unigine Heaven 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.

Here we find the GTX 460 and HD 6870 fighting nearly neck on neck. This benchmark always seems to highlight nVidia's superior Tesselation performance.

3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is Futuremarks flagship gaming oriented benchmark at present and is considered to be a demanding one at that. Our tests were carried out under the "Performance" prefix.

nVidia graphics cards hold an artificial advantage in 3DMark Vantage, due to GPU accelerated CPU tests thanks to PhysX functionality. Yet again this leaves both graphics cards with similar overall scores.

Mul compared to the 460 as that is what he has tested on his system in the past. We are all aware that the 560 is better than the 6870 though Quote
