Unlocking The AMD Radeon HD 6950 to 6970 – BIOS Flash Mod GuideThu, May 12, 2011 - 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. Settings were set at Very High quality with AA and AF at highest values- x4 and AF 16x. The section of Metro 2033 tested was the Prologue with fraps polling from when you are climbing up the ladder until opening the door to exit the metro station. This section includes many features found throughout the game including four creatures which attack you before you exit the building, dense particles, ammo in cabinets, a few computer controlled sections and, of course, Miller, your first companion.
Benchmark Results: Metro 2033 only shows minimal improvements until you step up to the full 6970 BIOS & clock speeds. Overall the improvements were the lowest of all our tests at only 5 – 7.5% increase. However this was expected looking at previous testing results comparing the 6950 to the 6970.
