Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
We use the in-game benchmarking tools that do not allow to measure the bottom frame rate. We also enable DirectX 10.1 support for ATI’s solutions.
This game doesn’t favor Adaptive AA algorithms used in AMD solutions, that is why when transparent textures antialiasing is employed, Nvidia solutions are usually way ahead in this game. This is certainly true for the above described Gigabyte graphics card. Although it belongs to the budget segment, it works very well in this game in 1280x1024 resolution.

During tests in this application we use the Extreme profile (1920x1200, 4x FSAA and anisotropic filtering).
Gigabyte solution is a definite leader among the today’s testing participants because GeForce 9600 GT has significantly weaker specs and Radeon HD 4770 doesn’t support PhysX acceleration.
But the situation in individual benchmarks depends on the resolution. Namely, in 1280x1024 the best result belongs not to our today’s hero, but to Radeon HD 4770. Even in 1680x1050 it yields to Nvidia solutions not as seriously as in 1920x1200.
