Metro 2033 is an action-oriented video game with a combination of survival horror and first-person shooter elements. The game is based on the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It was developed by 4A Games in Ukraine and released in March 2010 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. In March 2006, 4A Games announced a partnership with Glukhovsky to collaborate on the game. The game was announced at the 2009 Games Convention in Leipzig; a first trailer came along with the announcement. A sequel was announced, currently titled Metro: Last Light.
Metro 2033 is one of the most intensive games in our line-up and you can see that on our Intel platforms we have a GPU limitation as we hit a wall at around the exact same point. On the other hand, we can see that we hit a wall a lot earlier on the AMD platform; we can see exactly the kind of performance we can get out of the three cards in CrossFireX, so we can ultimately see the CPU limitation that's present on the AMD platform.
