Game Benchmarks: Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
The HAWX benchmark shows a lead in favor of the Core i7 system. Both systems will provide extremely smooth game play in this CPU-limited title. It should be noted that GeForce cards don't handle the ambient occlusion (AO) setting in this game nearly as well as Radeons do.
Even with 8x AA added, the slowest system is achieving almost 90 FPS. The Core i7 is generating higher numbers.
Adding in nvidia cards would be interesting to see, yes, but then we're moving more into engine optimizations and such, and things get less exact. Maybe the effect of software preferences on hardware architecture can be a future writeup? Nice article, here, though.
As I expected on the numbers, but I now want to see if the 790X chipset is to blame, or the Gigabyte board itself, or perhaps the memory controller onboard the CPU is to blame?
Did you read the conclusion at all? AMD lost by the numbers. That's not pro-intel, it's pro-logic. It's pro-science. That's the way the world works.
Wow. You take things way too seriously.
