The heavy emphasis on tessellation under Unigine Heaven means that NVIDIA has always been strong here as they've always just been one step ahead of AMD when it comes to overall tessellation performance.

Looking above you can see NVIDIA do really continue to dominate in this area. We've pretty much got performance equal to the dual GPU HD 6990. Considering that model continues to be stronger than the HD 7970, it's not a good thing for AMD.
