XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 Review

Tom Clancy’s Hawx (DX9)

Even though HawX has a built-in benchmarking tool, we found that it did not provide accurate enough results needed to reflect what actual in-game performance would be. Thus, we played through the first 6 minutes of a mission and recorded the results with FRAPS.

1680 x 1050

1920 x 1200

2560 x 1600

Much like Dawn of War II has become the breeding ground for ATI performance, NVIDIA has taken over HawX in a big way. Even though every card in the charts gets acceptable performance all the way up to the highest resolution, the HD 5770 polls in the bottom half of the cards tested in every benchmark here.
