Metro 2033

Metro 2033 (DirectX 11)


 

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. 

 

Our first set of results show an interesting story with the GTX 460 2WIN graphics card.  At 1680×1050 and 1920×1200 the EVGA option does VERY well and is able to match or beat all of the cards in our testing including the GTX 580 card that costs a good $60-70 more.  However, at 2560×1600, the GTX 460 2WIN takes a noticeable dive and comes in last in the performance result.  The reason is likely the 1GB frame buffer (per GPU) and lower per-core memory bandwidth that results from it.
