Review: AMD strikes back with a vengeance



Tessellation: Unigine Heaven

In Unigine, AMD's efforts to boost tessellation performance bear fruit once again. Nvidia cards manage to outperform the new Radeons in Extreme tests, but this is hardly a real-world benchmark. Using more realistic Normal settings, AMD can easily stand up to Nvidia, which means it has managed to close the tessellation gap and meet Nvidia's tessellation performance. Although some might consider this fact to be somewhat trivial considering tessellation support in current titles, it's worth noting that superior tessellation performance was one of Nvidia's main selling points over the past few months.

i'll wait for the trustable review sites to come out before making judgment, as this seems to conflict with other reviews that i have have seen.

Uh.. just by reading the final conclusion sentence you realize it can't possibly be written by Fuad. Author is Sanjin Rados. :)
