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 for the Radeons.


The results from the H.A.W.X. benchmark look much like those from Enemy Territory: Quake Wars a few pages back. Here, the Radeon HD 5970 has no trouble dispatching all of the single-GPU powered configurations and handily outpaces the dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 295. However, the Radeon HD 5850 and 5870 CrossFire configurations take the top two spots.
