Asus G751 Gaming Laptop: Mobile Maxwell Done Right
Hitman: Absolution & Metro Last Light
Hitman: Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted - and now hunted by the police - he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
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.
Metro Last Light has odd performance characteristics. The Asus G751 is no faster than the MSI GT60 Dominator overall, but its minimum frame rate is six times(!) higher than the GTX 880M's, and 4x higher than AMD's. Readers should be advised that while we turn on SSAA (Supersampled Antialiasing) this form of AA is the most computationally expensive. Frame rates on all GPUs would likely increase considerably were SSAA turned off.
But while turning SSAA off would make the game run faster, there's no arguing that with it enabled, the GTX 980M is again 2x as fast as AMD's R9 M290X.
