Heaven sees a nice boost in performance over the older HD 7970, but we're still behind the GTX 670 in this case. Tessellation is something that we see NVIDIA continue to be ahead in. AMD continue to close the gap every generation, but NVIDIA still manage to come out ahead in most tessellation heavy benchmarks.
