NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 768MB and 1GB Video Card Reviews
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
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
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 10.1 mode with AA enabled on all of the cards except the EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 as it doesn’t have the ability to run DX10.1 (we ran it at just DX10). Once again the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB card was faster than the PNY GeForce GTX 465. For ~$200 the GeForce GTX 460 is off to a rather good start as it’s beating the Radeon HD 5830 in all the benchmarks and even its big brother, the GeForce GTX 465!
