AMD Radeon HD 7790 Video Card Review w/ Gigabyte & Sapphire
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: The Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X OC was 27% faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC in Metro 2033 with the DOF disabled at 1920×1080.The Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 OC was within 1FPS of the Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X OC, but the cards slower memory it holding the performance back just a tad.
