Looking above at Metro 2033 performance we've got good looking numbers across the board. At 2560 x 1600 we can see the Phantom GTX 680 pulls in a solid 60 FPS. The GHz Edition of the HD 7970 pulled in an improved 62 FPS and you can see the Sapphire TOXIC version manages to pull in a very solid 67 FPS.
