AMD Radeon R9 Fury Review: Fiji On Air Tested
Metro Last Light Redux Performance
Finally, the other system slayer. Metro Last Light Redux is a revamped and updated version of Metro Last Light, which was 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.
The built-in benchmark is still a reliable performance gauge when comparing video cards and is also highly accurate from run to run, so it remains a great tool even as the core game begins to grow long in the tooth.
For our final game benchmark, we set overall quality to High, SSAA Off, Texture Filtering at 4x, and Tessellation to Normal.
Can you picture our poor Fury X trembling in fear yet? By now its very slim performance lead is a broken record. At best the liquid-cooled Fury X is only 5% faster than the new air-cooled Fury, at least in its current configuration.
