That looks a bit low. I get 69fps with HD 6950 Unlocked @ 950/1450. GTX580 @ 900Mhz gets 73fps.
So after seeing your post, I was kinda dissapointed by my score, so I decided to do a few more runs. Actually, it seems the tesselation setting in CCC overwrites the default setting of Unigine Heaven. It's something I had noticed from the 11.1a drivers as I could turn off tesselation even using tesselation at extreme in heaven. Those benchmark were ran at max tesselation (64x in ccc). So I decided to do a few more tests and even after clicking the "use application settings", it seems the last tesselation slider was still in action.
I did 6x tesselation from CCC, then clicked "use application settings" and here's what I got (11.2):
Those benchmarks were all ran using the same heaven settings, and were all using "use application settings" within CCC 11.2. Difference were changing the slider to the # tesselation, then clicking "use application settings" after slider was greyed out.
So there is obviously a flaw or non-compatibily in heaven where CCC last known tesselation will take over heaven tesselation. From 64x to 6x, I didnt really notice any differences that my eye was able to distinguish. At 4x, I could start seeing the tesselation wasn't at what is should be. And at 0x I could totally see the difference.
As for the improvements over 11.1a vs 11.12, check page 4 for scores in heaven, even tho its not a very overly world-changing improvement, it seems there is a little improvement from my test. I'll try running some 3d marks benchmarks for more concrete numbers.Edited by Qcgold - 2/15/11 at 9:53pm
