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.

None of these cards are particularly great at running Metro 2033 with these settings; they will have to be turned down for a truly playable experience with any of these cards.  Still, the HD 5770 and GTS 450 run right inline once again and the Galaxy card proves to be just slightly ahead.
