Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. (High Altitude Warfare eXperimental
squadron) is an aerial warfare video game developed by Ubisoft Romania
and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows. It was released in
United States on March 6, 2009 and features Microsoft DirectX 10.1 game
We ran this game in DirectX 9 mode with the image quality settings cranked up! The game was patched with update v1.2, which was the
most current patch.
For this game VSync and Antialiasing were both turned off.
All of the DirectX 9 options were set to
high as you can see in the image above.
Benchmark Results: HAWX did surprisingly on the latest AMD APU and Intel Sandy Bridge processor! AMD held the performance lead across all the platforms tested with the exception of the AMD 690G since it can’t run the game as it lacks Shader Model 3.0 support. Once again we see Intel having a very nice 7x performance gain and AMD having a 5x performance gain over the years.
