AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition & 7850 Video Card ReviewSun, Mar 04, 2012 - 11:05 PM
Metro 2033 is an action-oriented video game with a combination of
survival horror and first-person shooter elements. The game is based on
the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It was
developed by 4A Games in the Ukraine. The game is played from the perspective of a character named Artyom. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic Moscow,
mostly inside the metro station where the player’s character was
raised (he was born before the war, in an unharmed city), but
occasionally the player has to go above ground on certain missions and
scavenge for valuables.
This is another extremely demanding game. Image quality settings were raised to Very High quality with 4x AA and 16x AF. We turned off PhysX, but turned on DOF (Depth of Field) for benchmarking.
Benchmark Results: Metro 2033 is quickly becoming one of the oldest game titles in out benchmark suite, but it’s one of the most popular benchmarks among our readers and one of the toughest that we can run on our DirectX 11 cards. In this benchmark we see a larger gap between the cards and we can see where the extra stream processors on the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition come into play as there is a fairly large gap between the Radeon HD 7000 series cards. The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition was right between the GeForce GTX 580 and the GeForce GTX 570 once again.
