Metro Exodus - 1440p Performance With RTX And DLSS
Now we'll turn down the resolution a bit to see where performance lands for the GeForce RTX series cards in Metro Exodus at 1440p.
Metro Exodus 1440p with its highest maxed-out settings now shows us near 60 FPS average for the RTX 2080 Ti with RTX off and DLSS On. The lows are in mid 30's and much to our surprise, the RTX 2080 Ti comes to life with RTX High enabled in combination with DLSS, nearly matching our average while dropping a bit in 1% lows. This time the RTX 2080 Ti, or any card tested here for that matter, cannot run RTX off with DLSS on, which we assume is because, as we mentioned before, sometimes it takes so long for a frame to process that DLSS doesn't make sense, because it won't improve performance. While that may seem odd, we think perhaps if they could make it work, we could see upwards of 80-90 FPS at 1440p max settings, which would be a great sweet spot to be in.
