Metro 2033 is a really intensive engine and we've got some interesting results. At the less intensive resolutions we can see a slight gain in performance. Not the kind of numbers we've seen from the other games, though.

 

What's interesting is that we again see a negative impact at the highest resolution where the extra FPS is needed as both cards struggle to hit that 60 FPS mark.
