Just making sure my card is working properly, what should I be getting as average FPS and score with Unigine Heaven 4.0 at MAX settings with a GTX 680? Or is there a better way to test my card to see if it's working as it should be?

45-50FPS at 1080p.

Go for it. I like using Unigine and it will give you a good idea of how powerful and sufficient your card is. So run a test without AA, then with 4AA then with 8AA and add different levels of Tesselation as you go. Make sure you use your default resolution.

Ah, yes, I forgot to mention 1080p, thank you.

50 for a stock card, i get about 80 with a average 1300mhz of boost clock but at 1050p so expect more 60-70 in 1080p with maxed out overclock

Do you have any idea of what I should be getting, you know, to verify if it's a good, non-defective card?

Very nice! What's weird though, is I've been seeing reports of around 35FPS average with these same settings, but these were probably really early benchmarks, with different drivers and such.

I think such low FPS much have been due to higher tesselation and AA settings because if you enable those then your card will take a beating.

That makes sense, but Spawnkiller says he's getting 50 FPS with a stock card with everything turned up (including 8xAA and extreme tesselation)

Don't forget his card is already overclocked by eVGA so he will get such good FPS.

I misunderstood. When he said stock, did he mean a stock reference card? Or a stock SC 680 card (no overclocking done by himself)

He meant stock eVGA GTX 680 SC. You can see it on his signature at the bottom.

I wish I knew...my PSU was defective, and it had to be RMAed, and it won't be back until next week. Just wanted to create this thread to get the information before-hand. You can monitor this thread, if you want, and I'll post back here some time next week with the results.

I have a GTX 680 overclocked with memory at 500, power 132, and gpu at 100, and in Heaven 4.0, with everything on max, 1080P, Tesselation extreme, AA at 8x, at fullscreen I'm only getting 38 fps, max 60fps, and a score of 760. Is there something I"m doing wrong? When I lower the settings and take full screen off, the score is higher.
