Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light (DirectX 11)


 

Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.

As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…

Our Settings for Metro: Last Light

Interesting results here in Metro: Last Light as again we find the GTX 780 in SLI to have more consistent frame times but higher frame times as well.  The pair of R9 290X cards show some significant jitter in the 7-9ms range which is definitely still noticeable.  While the raw average frame rate would give the advantage to AMD I would have to say my experience was better with NVIDIA's GTX 780 cards.

 

Well something is seriously wrong here – try as we might we could not get the GTX 780s in SLI to scale in our Metro: Last Light testing at all!  The new AMD R9 290X does a good job improving performance and the frame pacing is doing a good job of preventing runt and dropped frames as we were seeing last month.  There is still a TON of room for improvement though though as we are seeing frame variances cross the 8ms mark more than 5% of the time.
