Palit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Graphics Card 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.

Performance has increased on 6800/6900 series cards but not enough to bring it up to the level of the GTX cards. This is also a game were we see one of the largest gaps in performance between the GTX 460 and 560.
PowerColor offer their own branded version of the liquid cooled R9 295 X2… and now for those who want a similar level of framerate they have their air cooled dual core R9 290X with Devil 13 branding. Today we take a look at this R9 290X2 to see what Powercolor can do with their custom design card in a selection of games including Battlefield 4 and GRID Autosport at 4K resolution.
