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 cranked up as you can see above.
The H.A.W.X. 2 PC game title runs on what looks like seven 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 i7-3960X processor.
Benchmark Results: The H.A.W.X. 2. benchmark used to be tough on graphics cards, but as you can see most high-end graphics cards tear this benchmark up even with aggressive image quality settings. The AMD Radeon HD 7970 averaged 136 FPS 1920x1080 with a single card and 261 FPS with two in CrossFire. This is a 92% increase in performance and is representative of what good multi-GPU scaling should look like when everything works right!
