Today sees the arrival a new benchmark from Unigine, the eagerly awaited Superposition benchmark. Aimed specifically at Overclockers and VR application testing, Superposition is a 3D benchmark that follows in the footsteps of previous Valley and Heaven benchmarks, and is designed to bring the most powerful GPUs to their knees. Here are some details from Unigine included in today’s launch:
The unique SSRTGI technique used in Superposition was developed by the UNIGINE team for the UNIGINE 2 engine (used for professional simulation & training applications, VR-applications, and games). The SSRTGI is a ray tracing algorithm: it makes real-time light and shadow look as realistic as possible. The benchmark has an Ultra HD mode with 4К and 8К resolution — extreme settings designed for the next-gen GPUs that will come on the market in the next couple of years.
MAXIMUM WORKLOADS AND ACCURATE RESULTS
The Superposition benchmark pushes even the latest flagship GPUs to their limits. And, what is more important, Superposition is a non-synthetic benchmark. The adjustable graphics parameters and an interactive mode with mini-games provide a workload corresponding to that of the latest and most advanced games. That is why, unlike the abstract numbers produced by synthetic tests, the Superposition metrics accurately reflect actual GPU performance.
FULL IMMERSION AND HIGH INTERACTIVITY
Superposition by UNIGINE introduces the next level of immersion into virtual reality. We offer a totally new VR experience. In VR mode, Superposition outclasses many VR games in graphics quality and the number of interactive objects (over 900 in a single room!). The benchmark is compatible with the most popular VR peripherals: Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Oculus Touch. You can check if a system is VR-ready and take in the full glory of the AAA-class PC and VR game graphics.
Soon after the release of Superposition, UNIGINE will launch its own global leaderboard. Not only will the users will be able to test their systems, they will also be able to share their results and compare them to those obtained by millions of other people around the world. Superposition is available in three editions: Basic, Advanced and Pro.
You can find the very first submissions for the Superposition benchmark on HWBOT find here and here thanks to Massman (who currently holds the World Records for both…lol). You can also download the new benchmark here on the Unigine website.
