Benchmark Results: Metro 2033, AvP, And Crysis 2

Benchmarking AMD's 768-Shader Pitcairn: Not For Public Consumption
By , Benjamin Kraft

Metro 2033

The Pitcairn-based engineering sample once more triumphs over the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, slotting in between that card and the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core. Metro 2033 is a rather demanding title, and a good showing here proves AMD's deliberately-handicapped GPU is capable of handling DirectCompute-enabled games and applications. This is especially relevant in the context of Nvidia’s desktop Kepler-based cards that give up most of their compute potential at the hands of branding.

Alien vs. Predator

AvP repeats the established pattern one more time, with our engineering sample board delivering another strong showing.

Crysis 2

Starting with the most recent driver update, the GCN-based Radeons can finally compete with the GeForce pack even in DirectX 9. We have already updated our VGA charts to reflect the new results. The Pitcairn-based engineering sample ends up within spitting distance of a Radeon HD 6950 and just ahead of the vanilla GeForce GTX 560 Ti and its Ti-less derivative.
