The Maingear RUSH dominates the field of reference gaming PCs we have in our test database here. The system boast roughly a 30% performance advantage over the fastest killer gaming rig we've tested previously, specifically Dell's fantastic Alienware Area-51.

Metro Last Light Redux
DirecX11 Gaming Performance

Metro Last Light Redux 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 damage; 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 Redux

Metro Last Light Redux 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, though we left them disable here. We tested the game at resolutions of 2560x1600 and 3840X2160 (4K) with its in-game image quality options set to Very High.

The performance trend we've seen throughout testing with the Maingear RUSH SuperStock X99 continued in Metro Last Light. However, here we see the system stretch its legs even further, surpassing the top of the field by well over 30 percent and once again putting up some of the best numbers we've ever seen in this test.
