Metro: Last Light – CrossFire
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
Clearly the SLI GTX 780 cards are producing a smoother frame rate than the R9 290s in CrossFire, but AMD has drastically improved CrossFire over the past year and with a higher average frame rate, the 2560×1440 multi-GPU winner is the R9 290.
NVIDIA continues to have a scaling issue with our Metro: Last Light testing at 4K; the 780s in SLI are actually running at the same performance level as the single card configuration. The R9 290s are definitely scaling, though with quite a bit of frame time variance mixed in. Clearly, if NVIDIA could get scaling working correctly here it might have a better chance of getting the win in our Metro 4K testing.
