Benchmark Results: Just Cause 2 And Metro 2033

System Builder Marathon, June 2011: $2000 Performance PC

Our highest resolution takes a big performance hit out of both machines in Just Cause 2, but the results are still smooth.

The new system’s improved driver appears to help it out when we crank up the eye candy. These are the settings where graphics cards become a tighter bottleneck than the CPU or RAM.

Metro 2033 punishes our cards at 2560x1600, particularly when Depth of Field is enabled. We really wanted at least one game to go beyond the limits of our best system, and this is where that happens.
