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 400 series.


The benchmark built-into Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. reported results somewhat similar to FarCry 2 from a few pages page. In this test, the PNY GeForce GTX 470 outpaces the Radeon HD 5870 at the lower resolution, only to fall behind once the resolution was increased to 2560x1600. Versus the Radeon HD 5850 though, the GTX 470 finishes well out in front in this game.
