H. A. W. X.
DX10 Gaming Performance


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 2560x1600 with all quality settings set to their highest values, and utilizing DX10.1

HAWX has been around for quite some time, but it still provides a good platform for testing the latest cards. We find that all three factory overclocked  cards recorded identical frames per second, and showed a 12% improvement over stock. Its worth noting, this is the only benchmark we ran that Gigabyte's Super Overclock was not able to distance itself from the other two cards.
