UNIGINE has recently announced an update for the Superposition benchmark tool which is powered by the UNIGINE 2 engine. This update was announced for April 12, and now we have results and interesting information about the changes introduced by the developers in this tool. Superposition benchmark 1.1 now includes an interactive mode for free VR (virtual reality), something very striking considering that in the previous versions you had to pay for it.
This one also has support for multiple HMDs, including Steam VR Valve, which we have already talked about in LxA. And most importantly for this blog, that now the new version includes support for Linux users who want to enjoy these virtual reality features. But this is not the only important thing that can be seen in the notes on the new release of this version, there is more that we are going to tell next ...
Additionally, an important improvement is included for the detection of algorithms by hardware and support for some very high resolutions of display, such as 16384 × 16384 px, a real brutality. This is impressive and certainly a good way to showcase the tremendous capabilities on the part of the UNIGINE team. Of course, as I have commented in the title, it also includes support for the most extraordinary graphical API, and which we have also written a lot about here: Vulkan.
By the way, apart from the Superposition tool, to determine the performance of the hardware of a PC, I have to say, for those who still do not know it yet, that UNIGINE 2 is a powerful graphics engine for virtual reality and video game applications that is capable of working in 3D in real time on Windows and GNU / Linux platforms. You can see much more information and results of its capabilities in the official website of this Russian UNIGINE Lab project.
