New benchmark grants the power to unleash the DirectX 11 potential in the gift wrapping of impressively towering graphics capabilities. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. With the interactive mode emerging experience of exploring the intricate world is ensured within reach. Through its advanced renderer, Unigine is one of the first to set precedence in showcasing the art assets with tessellation, bringing compelling visual finesse, utilizing the technology to the full extend and exhibiting the possibilities of enriching 3D gaming.

Moving into Heaven we can see that the overclock isn't enough for the overclocked TOXIC to come out ahead at 1680 x 1050. We can see that the overclock is enough for it to just sneak out ahead of our other cards at 1920 x 1200. This doesn't come as too much of a surprise considering the strong overclock and the fact that we see HD 7000 based cards perform better at the higher resolution when compared to their NVIDIA competitors.
