AMD FX-8150 Processor Review – Bulldozer ArrivesTue, Oct 11, 2011 - 11:00 PM
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 DX11 mode with the image quality settings set fairly high as you would on a high-end gaming PC with a Radeon HD 6950 graphics card.
The H.A.W.X. 2 PC game title runs on what looks like five threads if the processor being tested has that many available.
Benchmark Results: The AMD FX-8150 was able to put up some respectable numbers in H.A.W.X. 2. At 1024×768 the AMD FX-8150 was able to average 145 frames per second, that’s 4% behind the Intel core i7-990X and 9% behind the Intel Core i7-2600K. Once again though, once we increased the resolution to 1920×1080 we saw the differences all but disappear. When we look at the previous generation Thuban and Deneb cores, the AMD FX-8150 out performed them at 1024×768. While at 1920×1080 the margins once again shrunk to almost nothing.
