    Phoronix: Unigine Heaven 2.0 Linux Performance

    Yesterday the 2.0 release of the Unigine Heaven tech demo was released for Microsoft Windows users. This Windows release was greeted finally by the OpenGL Linux release of this impressive demo too. While we had published benchmarks and screenshots of the Unigine Heaven Linux release, this was based off of an internal build that we had received from Unigine Corp back in December -- long before the 2.0 release came about with its optimizations, updated engine, and new artwork. Due to this, we have now published a new set of Unigine Heaven performance numbers for Linux from a selection of ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards along with many new screenshots.

    The fact that we could reproduce the bug in house made a big difference too... makes it a heck of a lot easier to fix

    there is some problems right now particularly on the ATI/AMD side with this demanding Unigine demo. From the Radeon HD 5000 "Evergreen" graphics cards that we have tested, all that is displayed using the Catalyst 10.4 drivers found in Ubuntu 10.04 are psychedelic colors.
    So I filled a bug report about this and they say they are going to fix it "as soon as possible". We'll have to wait and see. But I'm quite surprised by this prompt response. I wonder if the fact that the bug was being spelled out in this Phoronix article has anything to do with it .

    I tried to do apples to apples comparison. Dx10 in win7 x64 is faster and scores a higher score, but only due to peak fps. Avg fps is still slower and there is much more micro stutter in win7. Not to mention min fps in win7 is 6 fps for dx10 and dx 11.

    Not bad... much better than I expected.

    My Windows install is a bit "fresher" than my Ubuntu install, since I rarely touch it these days. That could be causing the slow numbers. Also, on Ubuntu the demo does tend to run a little choppy at times while on W7 it's "smooth" for most of the time.

    64 bit does not help much, at max i saw a diff of 0.5 fps in the minimum fps. Too low to really gain something visable.
