Games: Metro 2033 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Next, we took on some post-apocalyptic shooters. Metro 2033 is new and tough on even modern systems. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. also provides a challenge.

Metro 2033
DX11 Gaming Performance

Metro 2033 is a game that makes excellent use of shadows. Dangers lurk in the dark, and the game’s depth of field adds to the sense that there, just beyond that rubble, something might be lying in wait. (And, of course, it is.)

AVADirect’s Mini Gaming PC pounded its way through the dimly-lit tunnels of Metro 2033 and came up with notably high frame rates. In fact, its lowest frame rate of 95.73 fps (at 1920 x 1080) is higher than the 1280 x 1024 resolution of the nearest contender, the iBuypower Revolt.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat
DX11 Gaming Performance

Call of Pripyat is the third installment of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. We ran this test with all settings on Ultra and with DX11. As with our other benchmarks, we ran S.T.A.L.K.E.R. at three common display resolutions.

Although S.T.A.L.K.E.R. has been around for years, the new Call of Pripyat has improved graphics and is a better test of graphics processing power than its predecessors. Even so, the Mini Gaming PC posted very high frame rates at all resolutions.
