    Beautiful Skyrim has been a long time in here. Just add the RealVision ENB and some other stuff according to the recommendations on the site: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/30936
    It's going to look even prettier than this benchmark!

    The "pop in" that I'm seeing is with hard shadows and with flowers/ground objects. The actual draw distance of the scenes is huge.

    Basically everything that's not clouds, a mountain, or a 2D sprite has nasty pop in

    Demo doesn't let me run at my native 4800x900 like Heaven does (maxes out at 4096 in vertical res). The multiple monitor option is giving me trouble. I got around 32fps average at 1600x900 full screen on one monitor.

    Catalyst 13.2 Beta 3 drivers used on Radeon HD 7950 with stock clocks.

    Is there a dedicated thread where you can submit your result? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    More importantly, they often use only frustum culling and no occlusion culling at all, so CPU makes unnecessary draw calls for occluded objects.
    Although it is easy to integrate displacement mapping (tessellation) in LOD system, art production should be zbrush/mudbox style rather than polygon modelling - so if you don't have original object in extreme poly-count version, tessellation is not as straightforward.
    Pop-ins should not exist by today's standards, I've seen LOD systems with smooth transitions (and i don't mean that pixelated dissolve shader ubisoft uses)

    Eheh, that's the problem :) I just wanted to know if there was some kind of thread where everyone could post their scores, I am pretty sure I've seen a couple of them in various forums but I know they require a lot of work :p

    Here's mine. On Linux ;)
    Too bad I cannot properly bench it @ 1920x1080 without triggering a [probably a bug in the driver]. *shakes fist*
    So I ran it on 1600x900 and 1280x720. "Deal with it, nerds." -Fork Parker

    What's up with the scores from nVidia? Even the 460s are faster than the latest 7800 cards...

    Don't understand the question. The dual 7800's in post # 24 beat my 460's...all the rest of the 7800 runs are single card.

    All four tests report 3x GPU, but this is false.

    For comparison, I re-ran it with the same settings on Windows in OpenGL and D3D11 modes.
    As expected, D3D11 ran noticeably faster than OpenGL - OGL scored ~17% less on Windows and ~15.5% less on Linux compared to D3D11.
    *wonders it that mostly the driver's or the benchmark's fault. Or both.*
    *bets on the driver being less optimized for OGL.*

    And alas, just like in some previous benchmarks I did, on Linux, OpenGL is faster than on Windows. Although, the gap is much smaller w/ 313.xx drivers - Windows driver IS catching up. (The gap was rather horrible before. Don't ask.)

    The results:

    P.S. I don't even know why I am actually posting those, knowing that most of You probably !care about this completely.

    Please dont bash it so hard, I am sure they will fix it. Its still very very pretty.
    If they dont, go ahead, i will join you with pitchfork.

    Here are two runs I made for comparison, it looks like CPU clocks and thread count makes little difference in final score.

    4.5 ghz HT off.

    4.8 ghz HT on.

    Sry for low res pic.

    Give it a couple of years, everyone will ;)

    I see that the minimum FPS is slightly better on the Linux side while the max goes the other way around. More love for Pilediver on the free side?
