We have a new GPU benchmark to test the merit of our latest graphics cards. Unigine is kn0wn for Heaven and Valley, but I imagine Superposition will be the next face of the developer. Check out the press release and image gallery below!

Overclockers all over the world are stocking up on liquid nitrogen. Suppliers are limiting shipments to one liter per customer. Why? Because it’s official: the new Superposition benchmark has been released!

A long awaited next-gen benchmark to replace Heaven and Valley. You think, you’ve maxed out on hardware? Want to see your brand new GPU heat up into a ball of blue plasma? Go ahead, try it — launch Superposition. See what real GPU stress looks like. Find out what your rig is really capable of. Download the Superposition benchmark now!

Superposition benchmark continues the line of GPU benchmarks by UNIGINE used by tens of millions people around the world. Superposition is a new-generation benchmark tailored for testing reliability and performance of the latest GPUs. Top-notch visuals, support for VR-devices and an interactive mode with mini-games — the list of features built into Superposition could go on and on.

A GPU-benchmark is a program designed to test the performance of a computer’s GPU. You can use it to determine the power of your GPU or to compare the performance characteristics of several different GPUs. Superposition also comes packed with other features and functionalities.

When you launch the Superposition, you find yourself back in the 1950s, in the laboratory of a physicist who has mysteriously disappeared. Explore to find out what experiments the professor was conducting and where did he disappeared to?


The unique SSRTGI technique used in Superposition was developed by the UNIGINE team for the UNIGINE 2 engine (used for professional simulation & training applications, VR-applications, and games). The SSRTGI is a ray tracing algorithm: it makes real-time light and shadow look as realistic as possible.

The benchmark has an Ultra HD mode with 4K and 8K resolution — extreme settings designed for the next-gen GPUs that will come on the market in the next couple of years.


The Superposition benchmark pushes even the latest flagship GPUs to their limits. And, what is more important, Superposition is a non-synthetic benchmark. The adjustable graphics parameters and an interactive mode with mini-games provide a workload corresponding to that of the latest and most advanced games.

That is why, unlike the abstract numbers produced by synthetic tests, the Superposition metrics accurately reflect actual GPU performance.


Superposition by UNIGINE introduces the next level of immersion into virtual reality. We offer a totally new VR experience. In VR mode, Superposition outclasses many VR games in graphics quality and the number of interactive objects (over 900 in a single room!).

The benchmark is compatible with the most popular VR peripherals: Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Oculus Touch. You can check if a system is VR-ready and take in the full glory of the AAA-class PC and VR game graphics.


Soon after the release of Superposition, UNIGINE will launch its own global leaderboard. Not only will the users will be able to test their systems, they will also be able to share their results and compare them to those obtained by millions of other people around the world.

Superposition is available in three editions: Basic, Advanced and Pro.

System requirements

Windows, Linux (64-bit), GPU no older than 4-5 years, Oculus Rift / HTC Vive headset (optional).
