DX11: Metro 2033

Metro 2033 (DirectX 11)


The latest addition to our gaming benchmark suite, Metro 2033 is one of the best looking PC games in years.  By utilizing some advanced DX11 features as well as impressively high-quality shading routines this title pushes our graphics in way we have seen since the first days of Crysis.

We ran Metro 2033 with Advance DOF disabled because it brought all of the cards but the GTX 480 to an unplayable state.

This is probably the worst outing for the ARES card unfortunately when compared to the GTX 480 – the NVIDIA card handily wins here.  However, the ARES is seeing a 19% boost over the HD 5970 and 52% over the HD 5870 so this is definitely an ATI / software / driver problem, not a hardware one from ASUS.
