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
Metro: Last Light continues to be a tough game on GPUs as our results show here. The brand new GTX 980 Ti is still only able score about 65 FPS at 2560×1440, matching the score of the Titan X essentially. AMD's Radeon R9 295X2 is a bit faster, getting just under 85 average FPS while the R9 290X single GPU card is pulls ~55 FPS, about 25% slower than the 980 Ti.
At 4K both the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and the Titan X bring in 36 average FPS with the R9 295X2 hitting nearly 50 FPS. Because of the dual-GPU configuration though, the 295X2 does breach the 3ms frame time variance level at about the 92nd percentile, much earlier than we'd like. The experience isn't awful but it clearly falls behind that of the single GPU cards in our testing.
