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.

The heavy emphasis on tessellation under Unigine Heaven means that NVIDIA has always been strong here as they've always just been one step ahead of AMD when it comes to overall tessellation performance.

 

Looking above you can see NVIDIA do really continue to dominate in this area. We've pretty much got performance equal to the dual GPU HD 6990. Considering that model continues to be stronger than the HD 7970, it's not a good thing for AMD.
