Running Unigine Heaven v2.5 - Not sure if benching iGPU or dGPU
I ran Unigine Heaven 2.5 to benchmark my EVGA GTX 570 (first time benching a GPU), but the results I got were confusing. According to the benchmark results (check the GPU model), Unigine was running off of the intergrated graphics of my i5-2500k. But aren't the fps results I got, given the settings I ran it at, much better than what an iGPU can produce? I would assume that I was correctly benching my GTX 570. Not to mention that I have the HDMI cable hooked up to the GPU and not the motherboard. So I'm just wondering why there is this inconsistency.
My Specs, if needed: - Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 - Intel i5-2500k - G.SKILL Jigsaw DDR3 1600MHz 8GB - EVGA GTX 570

It's probably a bug, but try running it at these settings, so you know how it compares to my card (GTX 560 Ti), for example:
I have a gtx 560 ti oc aswell from zotac, but my scores were dramatically lower than yours when i used the same settings as you did, and it said that it was running it on my cpu's gpu (i have an intel i5 2500k). I have my gpu connected to my monitor so what's the deal with this problem? ANY SUGGESTIONS IS VERY APPRECIATED THANKS
