Testing – Video
The next two pages of testing depend very highly on the video card you use. In our case it is the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB. You also will not see a huge difference between stock results and the overclocked results.
Our first video test is 3DMark 11.
Up next is 3DMark Vantage, I ran it on both “Performance” setting.
Our next benchmarking tool is the Heaven Demo v2.5. The Heaven Demo is based off the Unigine and is actually a DirectX 11 demo. The settings we used were 1920 x 1080 resolution, shaders: high, textures: high, filter: trilinear, Anisotrophy: 4x, antialiasing 8x.
Stone Giant is a DirectX 11 demo produced by Fatshark in collaboration with BitSquid using BitSquid Tech. It has primarily been developed to test the BitSquid tools and technology in a real-world production environment. The demo showcases how DX11 hardware tessellation can be used to achieve a high level of geometry detail in close-up shots. The settings we used were Resolution: 1920 x 1080, Aspect: Auto, Tessellation: High.
