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.

Moving into Heaven we again see those massive gains again at both resolutions and you can see we're again pretty much lined up with the older dual GPU HD 6990 here.

 

Compared to the GTX 680 we're in line with the reference model, but a bit behind the overclocked offering thanks to tessellation heavy benchmarks always favoring NVIDIA, due to better optimization with this graphics technology.
