Gigabyte GTX 570 vs Sapphire 6970 and 6850 vs Radeon 5870 Overclocked Graphics Cards Review

H.A.W.X. 2 – DirectX 11

HAWX 2 was recently released for PC and makes significant use of Tessellation as well as being a DirectX 11 title.

Testing was performed at 1920×1080 with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. All in game settings were at their maximum level.

We are using the retail version of HAWX2 for our testing and a section of real world gameplay rather than the benchmark which was released by Ubisoft in advance of the games release. With all detail levels set to their maximum and tessellation on we see a complete reverse of the F1 results with the Gigabyte GTX570 opening up a significant lead over the Sapphire cards. It is also interesting to note that in this engine which uses a significant amount of tessellation the 6950 shows performance above the 5870 for the first time, at least in average and minimum framerates. This would seem to indicate that the 6900 series cards will offer performance advantages over the older models as games adopt more advanced features in the future.
