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

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.

At 1920 x 1080 (the most popular resolution among Steam gamers, according to Valve’s monthly survey), the RUSH was averaging 23 frames per second more than its closest competitor in this benchmark, the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 5200.

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.  

Here again, the EPIC RUSH won the day. It’s not unusual for new systems to take the top spot in our benchmark charts, as they often have the latest technology, but the EPIC RUSH is developing an unusually strong lead here.
