ASUS Radeon HD 7970 3GB CrossFire ReviewFri, Jan 20, 2012 - 12:00 AM
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 the fourth fastest of the bunch in single card most at 1920×1080 with a respectable score of 32.33 FPS on this very tough benchmark. With the ASUS Radeon HD 7970 in the system for CrossFire testing we were able to hit 62.00 FPS. This is a performance improvement of nearly 92% again, remember we had a 92% performance gain in H.A.W.X. 2 as well! Not all games scale this well, but AMD does really well on these two titles.
