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.

While the HD 5870 was faster than the HD 6870 in 3DMark Vantage, under Heaven we can see that the HD 6870 is faster. That's because Tessellation performance is something that AMD has concentrated on with this new card. We can see while the HD 6850 continued to fall a little behind the GTX 460, the HD 6870 does the same, but only by a very small margin.
