H.A.W.X. 2 Benchmark
Aerial warfare has evolved. So have you. As a member of the ultra-secret H.A.W.X. 2 squadron, you are one of the chosen few, one of the truly elite. You will use finely honed reflexes, bleeding-edge technology and ultra-sophisticated aircraft – their existence denied by many governments – to dominate the skies. You will do so by mastering every nuance of the world’s finest combat aircraft. You will slip into enemy territory undetected, deliver a crippling blow and escape before he can summon a response. You will use your superior technology to decimate the enemy from afar, then draw him in close for a pulse-pounding dogfight. And you will use your steel nerve to successfully execute night raids, aerial refueling and more. You will do all this with professionalism, skill and consummate lethality. Because you are a member of H.A.W.X. 2 and you are one of the finest military aviators the world has ever known. H.A.W.X. 2 was released on November 16, 2010 for PC gamers.
We ran the benchmark in DX10 mode with the image quality settings set to low as you can see above.
The H.A.W.X. 2 PC game title runs on what looks like five threads as you can see from the task
manager shot seen above that was taken on the test system that was running
the Intel Core i7-2820QM processor.
Benchmark Results: H.A.W.X. 2 was run in DirectX 10 mode on both platforms and the difference between the Intel Core i3-2105 processor and the AMD A8-3850 APU was night and day. We were able to crank up the settings to high and enable 4x AA on the AMD system and was getting nearly 60 FPS at a resolution of 1280×720. With the resolution set to 1920×1080 we were still hitting nearly 40FPS on the AMD Llano APU, while the Intel Core i3-2105 processor was only able to yield 15 FPS!
