H. A. W. X.
DX10.1 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 2560 x 1600 and maximum image quality settings, utilizing DX10.1

With every setting maxed out on a 30" LCD, HAWX runs smooth with the Hydro Copper FTW. Our overclocked GTX 480 trailed the XFX HD 5970 by 7 frames per second, a 9% difference in performance. On the other hand, it led the stock GTX 480 by 11%, while prevailing over the Super Overclock HD 5870 by 23%.
