Unigine Valley

This test calculates the average frame-rate within the Valley demo for the Unigine engine, released in February 2013. This engine is extremely demanding on the system's graphics card. Unigine Valley relies upon an OpenGL 3 core profile context.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark unigine-valley.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Unigine Valley 1.0

Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Mode: Fullscreen

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 2,696 public results since 25 January 2015 with the latest data as of 18 June 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
