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.


Note: If a card doesn't support DirectX 11 the benchmark will be left out, if it does it will be included along with the DirectX10 results.




Under V1 of Heaven we can see that both the HIS and Sapphire HD 5850s sit very close together. Under V2, though, which is more intensive, the overclock on offer from the Turbo HD 5850 gives it a performance bump. However, compared to the GTX 480 the ATI offerings do fall back a bit due to the advanced Tessellation features on offer from NVIDIA.
