Point of View / TGT GTX 480 Beast reviewed - 7. Tessellation Test - Unigine Heaven

Review: GTX 480 Beast is the fastest Fermi around


Tesselation test - Unigine Heaven v2.1

The distinguishing feature of this benchmark is hardware tessellation, a scalable technology aimed for automatic subdivision of polygons into smaller and finer pieces, so that games gain drastically detailed and more elaborated look almost free of charge in terms of performance. Tessellation feature REQUIRES both video card with DirectX 11 support and MS Windows Vista/7!

There are three tessellation modes available in this version of the benchmark:

Moderate Mode : This mode is targeted to provide reasonable performance on a wide range of DX11 hardware.

Normal Mode : Default mode available in the benchmark shows optimal quality-to-performance ratio. That's the way to achieve prominent visual difference with hardware tessellation technology.

Extreme Mode : It is designed to meet the perspectives of the next series of DX11-capable hardware pushing up the tessellation level to the extreme in the next 1-2 years.

I am curious if it can beat Cayaman. Probably will be on par! (but Cayaman will cost 100 - 200 bucks less for sure)

Does it come with the radiator/water pump, or do you gotta have your own?

Quoting thomasg:

of course not... you have to have that in first place to buy a watercooled edition card. just comes with the plate for gpu. Those alone usually cost a lot. I don't see anything special about this besides a waste of money. New generation is coming out soon. I'd wait for 28nm if going with Nvidia then they could probably do wonders, but they are just stuck right now. Point of View / TGT seems like a great company though I would love to see what they do with next-gen NV cards.

Well it would have been a deal for a whole self-contained water-cooled card. They do make water-cooled cards like that, but if this one isn't, it just isn't worth the price premium.
