Custom Cooled Video Card Shootout: ASUS & MSI
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 three 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.|
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is one of the few games currently available that makes use of DirectX 10.1. Since NVIDIA chips don't support DirectX 10.1, ATI has the natural advantage here. The MSI R4890 Cyclone SOC takes the overall lead though the Matrix GTX285 is right on its heels.
