About it (Official)
Superposition Benchmark is a new GPU stress-testing tool from UNIGINE, the developers of the very popular and highly acclaimed Heaven and Valley Benchmarks. This powerful benchmark can be effectively used to determine the stability of PC hardware under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system's potential under maximum heat output. It also offers highly immersive VR mode with support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive HMDs.

Key Features
- Top-notch visuals powered by UNIGINE 2 engine
- Global leaderboards for benchmark scores
- Stress load for the GPU heating system
- Scalable quality settings
- VR mode (Oculus Rift and HTC Vive)
- Free interactive mode with mini-games
- Support for Windows and Linux

It seems it will come in three different additions, with a free option available.

You can help them by voting for it on Steam Greenlight.

Pretty stuff, look forward to playing with it in future. Article taken from

I'm waiting for them to support Vulkan in Unigine.

In the comments on Steam it says that Vulkan is not supported yet, but looked at for some time in 2017.

Hopefully they've managed to get some performance parity across platforms, because the older benchmarks made it seem like Linux performed worse than Windows, but that's only because the engine itself was not as well optimized for Linux as it was for Windows.

This looks really impressive - I was waiting for them to get a benchmark out based on the Unigine 2 engine. The time is nearing to start melting some GPUs.

I bet Mr. Wright's benchmarking sessions always end with an outrageous twist, just like his trials.
