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 and DOF (Depth of Field) for benchmarking.
Benchmark Results: The Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor-X ran Metro 2033 really well and averaged 53.33 FPS at 1920x1080 and 32.66 FPS at 2560x1600! ThE ASUS GeForce GTX 670 and GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II cards performed nearly the same with just a 1FPS or less performance difference between the two cards in this benchmark. The Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X was the slowest of the bunch, but but just 3FPS behind at 19x10.
