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 play.
For this game VSync was turned off, but Antialiasing was turned on and set to 8x for better image quality.
All of the DirectX 10 options were set to high including Ambient occlusion (SSAO) on both the NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards. All of the ATI cards tested had DirectX 10.1 enabled, as in the real world anyone owning one of these cards will have the feature enabled for better performance and improved image quality.
Benchmark Results: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.K. has awesome graphics and the ATI Radeon HD 4770 in CrossFire made it playable at 1920×1200 with 8x AA enabled! At 1280×1024 the Radeon HD 4770 CrossFire easily beats out the rest of the cards as it was 21% higher frame rates than the $250 Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 OC graphics card.
