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.
The improvement in tessellation performance is pretty evident here as not only does the new HD 6970 completely walk over the performance of the HD 5870 2GB card but is nearly as fast as NVIDIA’s GTX 580 card!
Again the HD 6900-series impresses as the HD 6950 finally is able to beat NVIDIA’s options (even at a $50 higher price) at a game title that was once dominant for the green team.
