Metro 2033 – Radeon HD 7870

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 continues to bring cards to their knees. 

 

Of all the games we have tested thus far, Metro 2033 shows the HD 7870 in the best light.  It is able to outperform the GTX 570 by a sizeable margin and can match the performance of the GTX 580 at 1680×1050 and 1920×1080 and actually sqeek ahead at 2560×1600!  Furthermore, the HD 7870 is able to do that at a $120 lower price!
