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.




Firing up Heaven, we can see where the new HD 6000 series models begin to perform strong. Tessellation was an area that AMD improved a lot in the new HD 6000 series and for that reason you're seeing the HD 5800s perform closer to the HD 6790 instead of the HD 6850. Of course, NVIDIA are also very strong with Tessellation and you see performance on the HD 5850 is close to the GTX 550 Ti and miles away from the GTX 560 Ti.
