The super intensive Metro 2033 is very much like the modern day Crysis and we continue to see single GPU offerings struggle to hit that 60 FPS target we want at 2560 x 1600. At stock the HD 7970 is no different, overclocked on the other hand we see our HIS offering is able to sneak over the 60 FPS mark by a single FPS.
