Metro Last Light

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. This title also supports NVIDIA PhysX technology for impressive in-game physics effects. We tested the game at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 with its in-game image quality options set to their High Quality mode, with DOF effects disabled.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti took the top spot in our Metro Last Light tests as well. At the lower resolution, the GTX 780 Ti and Radeon R9 290X (with the 290X in Uber mode) put up the same frame rate, but NVIDIA's new flagship came out on top at 2560x1600.

FCAT also showed the GeForce GTX 780 Ti to deliver frames more consistently than the Radeons. While the GeForce GTX 780 Ti did exhibit a couple of spikes above the 50ms mark, the Radeons suffered from far more, with some spikes approaching 70ms.
