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.

Once again, we see the Radeon HD 5850 pull well ahead of the pack, as the new Radeon HD 5830 and GeForce GTX 275 finish within a couple of frames per second of each other. The GeForce GTX 285 was marginally faster than the 5830, and the 5770 trailed the pack.
