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 GT 200 series cards, and DX10.1 path for the Radeons and GeForce GTX 480.


The new GeForce GTX 480 was about 11-25% faster than the Radeon HD 5870 in the H.A.W.X. benchmark, when running in a single-card configuration. And the GeForce GTX 480 showed vastly superior scaling in this game when running in SLI mode, which further enhanced its lead here. Once again, though, the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 5970 is clearly the leader, whether running in a single-card or a dual-card / quad-GPU CrossFireX configuration.
