Looking at Heaven, we can again see some fantastic performance again out of the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB, with it again coming out ahead of the GTX 770 2GB at both resolutions.

 

It really goes to show us how well AMD has done in tessellation, an area that they've really improved in each generation over the years.
