MSI GTX580 Lightning Review
Far Cry 2
Finally we find a test in which the Lightning doesn't set fire to our trousers, and surprisingly it's the older Far Cry 2. One of the very first DirectX 10 games it can't take advantage of everything the Lightning has to offer. It's still no slouch though, pulling clear of a twin-card HD6870 setup.
If there is one game we test that metaphorically shrugs its shoulders and gets all aloof with a single card it's Metro 2033. Stubborn doesn't begin to cover it. The brutality of the Lightning merely laughs and gets back to punishing polygons, going 8 FPS faster on average than the reference card. It's almost up there with twin card setups which are renowned for being suited to Metro 2033.
