Unigine Heaven

Nvidia made the GTX 480 with serious tessellation potential in mind, and the results confirm that. The level of tessellation can be regulated in Heaven engine and we see that the difference between the GTX 480 and HD 5870 rises after setting the tessellation level at Extreme. It’s well worth noting that Gainward GTX 480 manages a playable framerate at 1920x1200 with maximum tessellation. 

At Extreme tessellation settings, Gainward’s GTX 470 outpaces the HD 5870 by about 27%. The GTX 470 scores 709 on the test while the HD 5870 scores 557.
