Benchmarks: Gun Metal 2

Gun Metal 2 Source: Yeti Studio

Gun Metal 2 is one of the first games that will be taking advantage of DirectX 9 technology. According to Gun Metal 2, 2x AA is enabled by default on all videocards and the listed framerates are average.

It should be no surprise the Radeon 9600XT's come in last, after all it's a mainstream card. I would say it still does pretty well for itself here though.

You wouldn't really want to play Gun Metal 2 at 1600x1200 with any mainstream videocard... 13FPS just isn't going to give you a good gaming experience.
