Intel Core i7-2820QM – Sandy Bridge For Notebook PCsMon, Jan 03, 2011 - 12:00 AM
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 would install, but it wouldn’t run on our Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 system with the Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. The HP Dv4 notebook hasn’t had any GPU driver updates for it in over a year, so it is likely a driver issue. The ASUS K42F notebook with the Intel Core i5-540 processor had respectable scores in H.A.W.X. 2 with the image quality settings turned down. The Intel Core i7-2820QM ‘Sandy Bridge’ Processor was able to perform nearly twice as fast as last year’s processor that used Intel 2010 HD graphics.
