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.

Jumping into Unigine Heaven we can see some strong performance that shows clear gains over our other HD 7970s. Against our NVIDIA options you can see we're looking good against the GTX 670, but as usual we fall behind the GTX 680s, which handle tessellation very well.

 

You can see, though, when we move to 1920 x 1200, performance between the two models becomes closer.
