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

2 GPU Testing

 

NVIDIA's scaling in Metro: Last Light is exceedingly poor, while AMD's Fury X card is able to trumpet some impressive gains at both tested resolutions without huge increases in frame time variance.

3 GPU Testing

 

Huh. In our 3-Way testing, there are no winners. Only tie…ers.

Metro: Last Light – 2560×1440
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 72 103 +43% 103 +0%
GTX 980 Ti 70 82 +17% 83 +1.2%
Metro: Last Light – 3840×2160
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 40 68 +70% 68 +0%
GTX 980 Ti 36 42 +16% 42 +0%

Today's table is a little different than recent ones as we are not comparing directly between the AMD Fury X and GTX 980 Ti, and instead we are comparing single GPU to 2-GPUs and to 3-GPUs. The resolutions are separated to make things a big easier to digest and the "scaling" columns show you how much performance improvement you see going from 1-to-2 GPUs and then from 2-to-3 GPUs.

NVIDIA's results here are just plain bad – the best scaling rate we get is at 2560×1440 going from one card to two and even then we only see a 17% gain. AMD's 43% at those settings still isn't amazing but it's definitely usable. That improvement jumps up to 70% at 4K though so users with higher resolution panels will be able to take advantage of Fury X in CrossFire!
