Our Settings for Metro: Last Light

The Metro series is getting a bit aged, but the visuals are still impressive enough to warrant being a part of our graphics test suite. In this case, the Fury X is able to overcome the GTX 980 Ti at the lower of our tested resolutions by a small margin while also maintaining smooth and consistent frame times.

When tested at 4K, the Fury X looks even better in Metro: Last Light, taking its first double digit average frame rate victory over the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

And, those gains over the R9 290X continue as well, resulting in a margin of performance crossing in the 40% realm at 4K.
