Metro 2033

Metro 2033 is your basic post-apocalyptic first person shooter game with a few rather unconventional twists. The game is loosely based on a novel by Russian Author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It boasts some of the best 3D visuals on the PC platform currently including a DX11 rendering mode that makes use of advanced depth of field effects and character model tessellation for increased realism. We tested multiple game resolutions and in-game image quality options set to High Quality mode, with DOF effects disabled.

Metro provides us with more competitive results. Of course, the GTX 580 is still the fastest, but the HD 6970 creeps back up to second place. It's very close though. The GTX 570 trailed by only 3 FPS at 2560x1600, 1 FPS at 1920x1080, and tied at 1680x1050 resolution.
