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 code path for the GeForce cards, and DX10.1 path for the Radeons.


The Radeon HD 5670 and GeForce GT 240 were very evenly matched in the H.A.W.X. benchmark at resolutions of 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, with only a single frame per second separating the two cards. With the resolution cranked way up to 2560x1600 though--admittedly a resolution not likely to be used very often with a card of the 5670's caliber--the Radeon pulls ahead by over 58%.
