Metro 2033 - Which Directx mode performs best?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Started playing Metro 2033,

Given my gear I'm not going to be using the extra dx11 features like tesselation and advanced dof, or Anti Aliasing.

That said, does anyone know if dx9, 10, or 11 perform best?

DX 9.0 of course but the game shines in DX 10.

That's like asking which graphical setting will run best, low (DX9), medium (DX10) or high (DX11)? The less the GPU is doing, the better it does its job.

Wrong. Many games run better in directx 9 vs 10 with identical settings and identical image quality. I.e. Resident evil 5, Crysis warhead, etc..

And now some games run better under Directx 11 with identical settings, like World of Warcraft, and Bad Company 2
