Metro 2033

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 game is loosely based on a novel by Russian Author Dmitry Glukhovsky. Metro 2003 boasts some of the best 3D visuals on the PC platform and includes a DX11 rendering mode that makes use of advanced depth of field effects and character model tessellation for increased realism. This title also supports NVIDIA PhysX technology for impressive in-game physics effects. We tested the game at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 with adaptive anti-aliasing and in-game image quality options set to their High Quality mode, with DOF effects disabled.

The Metro 2033 benchmark doesn't tell us anything new. To this point the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SuperClocked with ACX cooling has been the fastest single-GPU power card in the group. And the same hold true in Metro 2033. The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SuperClocked with ACX cooling even manages to pull ahead of the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 7990 at the lower resolution, but the 7990 come roaring back once things are cranked up to 2560x1600.

All of the cards we tested had some issues with high latency frames in the Metro 2033 benchmark, but save for some larger-than-usual spikes with the Radeon HD 7970, there's not much to talk about here. Once again though, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SuperClocked with ACX cooling leads the single-GPU powered pack across the board here.
