Metro 2033 performance is really strong and like we've seen a couple of times now, the massive overclock on offer from the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7970 helps boost our average over that 60 FPS mark, a number that wasn't being reached on the reference video card.

 

We also continue to see extremely strong performance against the GTX 680 with the best gains for AMD being seen at the highest resolution where the overclocked PowerColor offering can outperform even the overclocked GTX 680.
