Just as I said would happen a few days ago, Unigine Heaven 4.0 was officially released. This is one very demanding OpenGL tech demo for Linux (and Windows / Mac OS X) systems, but Thursday's release of Unigine Valley will be even more jaw-dropping.

The press release is now out announcing the immediate availability of Unigine Heaven 4.0 as the update to the popular Unigine Engine benchmark / technology demo with its OpenGL 3.2 and DirectX 11 renderers. The features and what's noted in the press release is basically the same as what I exclusively reported on last Sunday in Unigine Valley & Unigine Heaven 4.0 Coming Next Week. You can also read more details about the engine-level work as written about yesterday in Unigine Engine Now Complies With OpenGL 3.2 Core.

Go forth and give it a try! If you use the Phoronix Test Suite software for conducting automated and reproducible open-source benchmarks, it's just a matter of firing up the Phoronix Test Suite by running the phoronix-test-suite benchmark unigine-heaven command as through the OpenBenchmarking.org cloud it already has the new v4.0 release thanks to our close collaboration with Unigine Corp. It can be found in the Unigine Heaven test profile. The Unigine Valley 1.0 demo is also ready to ship with the official debut on Thursday.

Benchmarks of Unigine Heaven 4.0 and Unigine Valley 1.0 from an assortment of NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards under Linux will be posted shortly.
