Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks - Unigine Heaven

Heaven Benchmark is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on advanced UNIGINE engine. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. Interactive mode provides emerging experience of exploring the intricate world of steampunk. It is the first DirectX 11 benchmark in the world, the original version was released at the moment of Microsoft Windows 7 launch in October, 2009. The distinguishing feature of the benchmark is hardware tessellation, a scalable technology aimed for automatic subdivision of polygons into smaller and finer pieces, so that games gain drastically detailed and more elaborated look.

Thanks to the A8-3870K, HD 7850 scored slightly better. This is not the only test where the A8-3800K showed superior processing power, but more on that later. When tessellation tasks are moved to the IGP, the HD 7660D beats the HD 6550D by 42.4 percent.
