We see strong gains when moving to Heaven and you can see the MSI offering gives us a nice boost in performance over the reference clocked card and the overclocked one.

We can see at the highest resolution performance is nearly identical to the dual GPU HD 6990 as well. We can see the new GTX 680 does very well here as we know that Tessellation heavy benchmarks have always favored the green team.
