NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Video Card Review w/ MSI and EVGAThu, Sep 13, 2012 - 8:00 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 and DOF (Depth of Field) for benchmarking.
Benchmark Results: There is definitely a pattern starting to emerge with between the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC and the MSI GTX 660 OC. Both of the cards are taking turns leading at one resolution or another. This time around the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC leads at 1920×1080 with an average of 34.33 frames per second while the MSI GeForce GTX 660 OC leads at 1280×1024 with an average of 49.33.
