I'm intending to make some videos in the future of the Diolinux channel involving cross-operating system benchmarks, so nothing better than finding a fixed benchmark platform to do an analysis for, which Unigine Heaven comes out to be compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac
Unigine Heaven also has a paid version, but the free version "already gives out", as they say.
The program is for you to do stress testing on your graphics hardware, using either DirectX or OpenGL, as the tool has versions for Linux, Windows and Mac, it is possible to compare the 3 systems, at least under the open source API.
There are several options for you to customize the test, with tessellation processing and filters. Anti-Aliasing so you can see how far your card goes. Unigine Heaven is compatible with Nvidia, AMD and Intel and asks you to give preference to using proprietary drivers on Linux for a better experience.
Download and use
For download, just access this page, There is also the Unigine Valley version, which basically changes the type of scenario used in the benchmarks, you can test with both if you want. The file is just over 270 MB in size to download.
The downloaded file has the extension .run, in theory you can execute it by double clicking, if this is not possible, make sure that in the file properties it is marked to be executed as a program.
By double clicking on it and rotating it, a folder with the name of the software will be created in the folder you are in, if you have saved the file to the desktop for example, a folder will be created there, inside this folder you will find the files to run Unigine Heaven (or Valley), just double click the "heaven" file if you are using Unigine Heaven, or the "valley" file if you are using Unigine Valley.
Now move on to the tests! 🙂
