ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black Video Card ReviewFri, Sep 24, 2010 - 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.
An extremely demanding game, settings were left at High quality, with AA and AF at lowest values- AAA and AF 4x. Advanced DirectX 11 settings were left at default. The recently added independent (requires purchase) benchmark was used and ran three times per card and per resolution.
Metro 2033 is tied with AvP as the most demanding game tested. Just getting above 30FPS is a challenge for all cards including mix crossfire, which had better high resolution results than the ECS GTX 460, but slightly lower at the 1280×1024 resolution.
