One of our most intensive games and you can see we do dip a good 12 FPS below that 60 FPS average we aim for. It's not much of a surprise considering we achieved only 70 FPS at 2560 x 1600. It's still very good performance, but for this resolution you're going to want to drop the detail down a little.


Fortunately, as intensive as Metro 2033 is, it's not that great a game, so you may not find yourself playing it anyway. It's fantastic to see what your setup is cable of, though.
