Metro Last Light
DirecX11 Gaming Performance


Metro Last Light

Metro Last Light is your typical post-apocalyptic first person shooter game with a few rather unconventional twists. Unlike most FPS titles, there is no health meter to measure your level of ailment; rather, you’re left to deal with life, or lack thereof, more akin to the real world with blood spatter on your visor and your heart rate and respiration level as indicators. Metro Last Light boasts some of the best 3D visuals on the PC platform and includes a DX11 rendering mode that makes use of advanced depth of field effects and character model tessellation for increased realism. This title also supports NVIDIA PhysX technology for impressive in-game physics effects. We tested the game at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 with its in-game image quality options set to their High Quality mode, with DOF effects disabled.

There's lots to see in these Metro Last Light scores. In the single-GPU configurations, the GeForce GTX 760 cards perform right about on par with the Radeon HD 7950. In fact, at the lower resolution, the reference and EVGA GTX 760 cards sandwich the Radeon HD 7950. In the dual-GPU configurations, however, the SLI setups exhibited better scaling, and as such, they were able to overtake the Radeon HD 7950 CrossFire configuration.

I have a 660 Ti. I think I'll wait for a new architecture in the 800 series before I upgrade.

Nice review Marco, that's a good pair of cards for a good price.

If I hadn't just bought two EVGA GTX-680s recently, I would be interested in them.

These 700 series are nice for those who still have a 500 or lesser series cards, but anyone with a 600 series ought wait for the 800's. I have a 660 ti and i know for sure that I'll be waiting for the 860 ti before I upgrade.

I really want to get a new graphics card but at the same time, if I do I might need to change my motherboard and processor and everything else too. I really want to get this one though the specs are looking amazing.

Interesting, but I'm more interested in a 660TI seems to work in similar maner, and can run most games on high or ultra.
