AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ReviewWed, Dec 21, 2011 - 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 AMD Radeon HD 7970 was able to take the top spot once again for the single GPU graphics cards. At 1280×1024 the AMD Radeon HD 7970 was nearly 10 frames per second faster than the previous generation XFX Radeon HD 6970, that’s a difference of 34.6%! Once we increase the resolution to 1920×1080 the AMD Radeon HD 7970 was 27.6% faster than the previous generation.
