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.

Another strong showing by all three GTX 580's. Even with image quality on high, playable frame rates were achieved. Here we find the higher the resolution, the better the HD 5970 performed in comparison to NVIDIA's flagship model. It was actually able to top the 580's in the 2560x1600 resolution benchmark.
