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-based engine for the GeForce cards, and DX10.1 libraries for the Radeons.

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. runs best on the dual-GPU powered cards, as is evident by the significantly higher scores for the X2 and GTX 295 at 1920x1200. With the resolution increased to 2560x1600 though, the GeForce GTX 295 falls victim to the Asus EAH5870. The 4870 X2, however, is able to maintain its a wide lead.
