AMD Radeon HD 7950 & XFX R7950 Black Edition Video Card ReviewMon, Jan 30, 2012 - 11:00 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: The XFX Radeon HD 7950 Black Edition was the second fastest single GPU card of the bunch. Averaging 35 frames per second it was tied with the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win at 1920×1080 and only 2.34 frames per second behind at 1280×1024. The AMD Radeon HD 7950 was 3.33 frames per second behind the XFX overclocked 7950. Both of the Radeon HD 7950’s were able to outperform the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580’s by a small margin.
