System Builder Marathon, Dec. 2009: $1,300 Enthusiast PC

Game Benchmarks: Real-Time Strategy And Flight Sim

This is another CPU-limited title, for the most part. But with 4x anti-aliasing (AA) and 16x anisotropic filtering (AF) enabled, the graphics card becomes the limiting factor at 2560x1600. We can see the two systems providing similar results at this level of resolution and detail.

All comers are overachieving when it comes to H.A.W.X., but it is interesting to see that the Phenom II X4/quad-CrossFire system takes the lead here across the board.
