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.

Note: If a card doesn't support DirectX 11 the benchmark will be left out, if it does it will be included along with the DirectX10 results.

Under Heaven we see that V1 performance between both HD 5870s is very similar. When we look at the V2 performance, though, we can see that the HD 5870 SOC from GIGABYTE has a more noticeable increase in performance.

Compared to the NVIDIA offerings, we can see that the ATI cards do fall behind the new NVIDIA ones when using the latest version of Heaven.
