Metro Last Light and Bioshock Performance

Metro Last Light Performance

A sequel to Metro 2033, the dark and spooky first person shooter (FPS) Metro Last Light continues the journey of Artyom. Armed to the teeth, you fight your way through monsters and hostile commandos as you search for the Dark One. Metro Last Light has some unusual gameplay features, including a health system in which you heal slowly, rather than using the typical med kit. And, because good bullets are hard to make, Metro denizens use bullets as currency.

Although the Revolt 2 and Bolt 3 remained in a tight race, the Revolt took the lead in both Metro: Last Light tests. Obviously, neither system knocks it out of the park in the 4K benchmark, but that’s not surprising from SFF systems with single GPUs. 

Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite takes you (as onetime Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt) to the mysterious, flying city of Columbia. You find yourself helping Elizabeth, who soon turns out to have unusual powers. The game is an FPS, but the storyline is as compelling as the battles and Bioshock Infinite has won awards and praise for its story and art design. We run the Bioshock benchmark with depth of field (DOF) enabled at the usual resolutions.

The Revolt 2 stayed hot on the heels of the Bolt 3 in Bioshock Infinite, staying within just a couple fps in one of the tests. So far, the two systems have produced solid (and nearly equal) results.
