Metro 2033 is a first-person shooter video game with survival horror elements, based on the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. The game is played from the perspective of Artyom, the player-character. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic Moscow, mostly inside the metro system, but occasionally missions bring the player above-ground.
We used the game’s ‘High’ setting to offer an intense challenge for the gaming hardware while also making playable frame rates a possibility.
The P8Z77-V LK was able to outperform the P8Z77-V in our Metro 2033 runs. This could be related to possible variations between the memory speed of each board or a different latency between the CPU and graphics subsystem. The rounding of Metro 2033’s benchmark also has an effect.
