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.
First things first: in Metro 2033 the new HD 6870 matches up perfectly with the GeForce GTX 460 1GB reference card and beats out the HD 5850 by a small margin. The problem for AMD is the EVGA overclocked GTX 460 – it is easily faster than the HD 6870 and costs $10 less!
The new HD 6850 is definitely faster than the HD 5830 and even the GTX 460 768MB card but the 1GB reference GTX 460 give it some trouble.
