    Phoronix: Unigine Releases New Heaven For Linux

    Our friends at Unigine Corp released version 3.0 of their very impressive OpenGL tech demo and benchmark today. Unigine Heaven 3.0 works on Linux and Windows platforms along with support being introduced for torturing Apple's Mac OS X...

    "-Fixed minor visual artifacts."

    funny. i do now have some minor visual artifacts, while with previous version i didnt.
    (screen flashes few times during the test)

    few fast results also (didn't close my other programs tho. opera with 38 tabs, deluge and stuff like that was open)

      Heaven now works, but it still has some bugs. Instancing is fixed finally, but texture arrays are used without being enabled (why?). This directive must be added to all shaders which use texture arrays:

      #extension GL_EXT_texture_array : require

        This is precisely why I wish we had an open source engine that was truly competitive with Unigine in terms of visual fidelity. When developers smartly find issues within the open source engines, there's no need to write a hack-around in the driver (which needlessly complicates code and makes maintenance a nightmare) -- just update the engine to comply with the GL spec. Then everyone is happy.

        Hopefully, though, Unigine pays enough attention to Phoronix after all of Michael's promotions that they will see your post and fix their engine, despite the fact that it is closed source and you can't directly fix their code for them (without buying a Unigine license). They're a small enough company with a close enough affiliation with the Linux graphics crowd that I'm sure they're more willing to listen than the likes of, say, EA or Ubisoft.

          And the bug introduced in 2.5 persists, OpenGL4 with AA is slower than DX11 with AA, although without AA they're on par.

          @Michael: Can you ask them to do something about it ( since your words have more weight behind them ) or they don't care about OpenGL anymore?

                better stuff

                GTX470 now supports tessalation, nicer interface.
                If only we could have some game with such graphics...
