Benchmark Results: Metro 2033
Metro 2033 is a post-apocalyptic survival-horror shooter. It can be described as Fallout 3 on rails, and without the RPG elements.
There’s not much to say here—the game is completely unplayable on the E-350. The D525/Ion 2 locks up when we attempt to run the game.
Metro 2033 is not playable on these platforms.

so the gpu's in modern consoles are around the same as the e-350? since these gpus are mainly cpu bound? Also should have put counterstrike fun and not demanding.Reply
Can they make a video game that features a Monopolistic Chip Company who threatens and bribes computer manufacturers to be zombies?Reply
OOPS It's not "Aamusing"Reply
It's Pointless To Compare Them...
Why are you guys not testing some good quality freeware first person shooters, that could run smoothly on those low end PCs? For example:Reply
Urban Terror (my favorite one), Open Arena, Alien Arena? Or at least Quake live?
Cause it's ridiculous to test all those latest shooters on such low end machines...
I was just thinking about reinstalling either of the Star Trek: Armada titles now I've moved to Windows 7, just to see if it removes the stuttering I experienced in XP. Good to see one of those titles here.Reply
Good review; was kinda wishing for the HL2:LC or some previous-gen UT titles though. :)
You could've tried overclocking them :DReply
But seriously, the ION seems to be bottlenecked by the cpu.
Low end graphics! How about testing them with popular MMOG for addicts that travel, but like the portability of netbooks!Reply
Diablo 2? and Warcraft 3?Reply
Thank you for including older titles in your comparison ! I hope you'll be able to include even more of them in any future tests to give each major game engine of the era a fair chance :)Reply
