PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390 8GB GDDR5 Review

Metro Last Light Performance

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.

Radeon R9 390 Frame Time Data

The Radeon R9 390 pulled ahead of the 290X again in Metro Last Light.  This game benefits from the 390's larger, higher-clocked 8GB of memory, though the card can't catch the GeForce GTX 980.
