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, but 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.

Metro 2033 benefits from a mix of higher GPU and memory clocks, and as such, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 AMP! edition takes the top spot overall from the Asus GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP edition. All of the factory overclocked cards put up strong performances here though, with only a couple of frames per second separating the leaders from the slightly lower performing cards.
