Demanding benchmark that is included in the popular FPS, Metro 2033. The demo is a camera fly through in a subway tunnel. There are large amounts of gunfire, cloth and lighting effects. The demo has a number of noticeable slowdowns from heavy flame, fog and motion blur effects. We run the game on the DX11 code path.

One a single GPU we see a number of dips, similar to Far Cry 2. When running in CrossFire multi-GPU, I do see noticeable micro-stuttering.

Metro 2033 needs a lot of horsepower, and it needs a large frame buffer. Neither card hits 30fps in a single screen. The Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition does just beat the Radeon HD 6790, and surpasses the Radeon HD 6770 by more than 20%. The game is a slide show in this family of cards, in Eyefinity.
