Metro 2033 is just another one of those super intensive games that again places a lot of pressure on GPUs thanks to its next generation features. While the game itself isn't anything to get all that excited about, a bit like the Crysis series, the technology implemented within the game make it an excellent benchmark.

 

While we do again see like Aliens vs. Predator the 2560 x 1600 number falls just below that 60 FPS average we like to see, across the board we've got some serious improvements when compared to the HD 6970 and GTX 580.
