Metro 2033 paints a picture near identical to Aliens vs. Predator with an average FPS of just under 60 on the reference clocked HD 7970. Thanks to a 10% increase in performance again, though, on the Sapphire overclocked offering we see that average FPS jump to 60 and that's exactly what we love to see for a smooth gaming experience.
