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 benchmark built-into Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. showed marginal improvements for the PowerColor Radeon HD 5800 series PCS+ cards as well.  Here, at both resolutions the 5870 PCS+ was 3 frames per second faster than the reference card and the Radeon HD 5850 PCS+ was two frames per second faster.
