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

Metro 2033
DX11 Gaming Performance

Metro 2033 is your basic post-apocalyptic first person shooter game with a few rather unconventional twists. Unlike most FPS titles, there is no health meter to measure your level of ailment; rather, you’re left to deal with life, or lack thereof, more akin to the real world with blood spatter on your visor and your heart rate and respiration level as indicators.

The Zeus Mini arguably did even better in Metro: 2033, as it was just a few FPS away from all but the dual-GPU Maingear EPIC RUSH and CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme.

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. This is one of the longer benchmark demos, and it runs through several different scenes, then provides the average frame rates for each scene. We recorded the frame rates from the Sun Shafts module.

There’s a bit of backsliding for the Zeus Mini in S.T.A.L.K.E.R., as its 117.2 FPS puts it behind almost all of the other systems. True, it’s again within a few FPS of several systems that scored better, but it’s significantly behind several others.
