My System Specs


While I'm not part of the review staff, I can say that the list of games that HWC uses in the review process gets updated regularly, and SKYMTL tends to choose games that are both popular and demanding on the hardware. While the Call of Duty games were popular, they are all DirectX 9 titles and are 2 steps behind the curve, so to speak. If I recall correctly COD:WaW was part of the testing suite at one time, but has been replaced by more current DX10 and DX11 titles.

EDIT: I got curious and looked. The last review using CoD: World at War was the Sapphire 5970 OC edition, in November 2009. Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 2GB OC Edition Review
