The game has a built-in benchmark that is very tough on video cards!
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. The game was patched with update v1.2, which was the
most current patch.
Benchmark Results: When we ran Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. in DirectX 10 mode with AA enabled, we saw the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 had a 9% performance
improvement over the MSI R5870 Lighting at 1920×1200. In lower resolutions (1280×1024), however, the GTX 480 gained almost 18% in performance over both 5870’s.
