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.

Heaven Performance looks really good and you can see while 3DMark 11 saw the HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB and the R9 280X 3GB sit quite close, here the new R9 has a much stronger lead.

 

Compared to the GTX 770 2GB though, you can see the NVIDIA offering manages to come out slightly ahead at both resolutions. Not a huge surprise, NVIDIA continues to perform very strong when tessellation is thrown into the mix.
