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. is a game that was just released this month and it does much better on ATI Radeon 4800 series graphics cards as you can see in the chart above. The Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 OC was 48% faster than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 reference board in this benchmark at 1920×1200 with 8x AA enabled.
