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.
Another extremely demanding game, settings were left at High quality, with AA and AF at lowest values- AAA and AF 4x respectively for both DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 APIs. Advanced DirectX 11 settings were left at default.
Again the GeForce GTX 260-216 just comes out ahead of the XFX Radeon HD 5770, which in turn just beats the 5750 by a few fps. The mix crossfire really pulled ahead in this game, with a gain of better than 20fps at each resolution over the GTX 260. Keep in mind the GTX 260 BE is factory overclocked heavily, and all other cards are at reference frequencies, but we'll have to wait to see how the XFX HD 5770 does at a relative overclock.
When in DirectX 11, all three were borderline playable depending on how choppy of game play you can stand. The HD 5750 scored very close to the HD 5770 and the mix crossfire yet again had substantially better frame rates at 1920x1080.
