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.

We can again see under Heaven that the 2600k with its Intel HD 3000 graphics isn't able to run DX11 because it's of course not supported. The A8-3850 at stock really has a very strong lead over the HD 3000 graphics with a score of 412 versus 279.

 

Overclocked, you can see the kind of performance boost we're able to achieve. CrossFire performance is very strong, though; we move from 569 to 870 points in DX11 and 871 to 1334 points. That gives us a great idea on the kind of performance that's on offer when we combine our HD 6670 with the A8-3850.
