Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is an aerial warfare video game that takes place during the time of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.  Players have the opportunity to take the throttle of over 50 famous aircrafts in both solo and 4-player co-op missions, and take them over real world locations and cities in photo-realistic environments created with the best commercial satellite data provided by GeoEye.  We used the built-in performance test at two resolutions with all quality settings set to their highest values, using the DX10.1 code path for both the Radeons and GeForce 400 series cards.

Both of the new Radeon HD 6800 series cards were able to outpace the stock GeForce GTX 460 in the H.A.W.X. benchmark, however, the GeForce GTX 470 ruled the roost, alongside the Radeon HD 5870 and overclocked GTX 460.

Once again, the Radeon HD 6800 cards' excellent CrossFire scaling allowed them to pull ahead of competitive offerings.
