Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X Test Settings
H.A.W.X produces some interesting results for us to look at on the HD 5850. At 1680×1050 and 1920×1200, the newest card from AMD is beat pretty easily by GeForce GTX 285 and comes out on par with the GTX 275. However, once we hit the 2560×1600 resolution, the power of the HD 5850 really shines and not only does it wipe the floor with the GTX 275 (40%+) but it is basically dead even with the GTX 285.
CrossFire scaling continues to impress me – after a time I thought when multi-GPU technology had fallen by the wayside AMD is proving that the technology can still be very valuable for gamers – we see nearly 70% scaling at 2560×1600. At this top resolution we also see that the HD 5850 is only about 15% slower than the HD 5870.
H.A.W.X was definitely one of the more impressive games visually using three monitors in our testing. See how it looks as I share my thoughts.
