EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW Video Card ReviewMon, Oct 18, 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.
Benchmark Results: The EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW was easily able to dominate our pack of graphics cards. When running at 1280×1024 the EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW had performance that was more than 100% over that of the HIS Radeon HD 5870. At 1920×1080 the gap did close between our cards but was still more than 62% in favor of the EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW.
