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.


Here we get some mixed results. At 1920x1080 and 1680x1050, the GTX 580 FTW HC2 achieves the top spot among the comparison group. But at 2560x1600, the dual-GPU HD 5970 pulls ahead of the EVGA card by 4 FPS (9%).
