NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Testing:
Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro Last Light is the followup to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deepsilver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.
- DirectX 11
- Global settings = Very High
- PhysX = Off
In this game we see the results scale well with the card's capabilities. The GTX 780 starts out strong here with a massive performance increase over the HD 7970 in both resolutions. At 5760x1080 it still has a substantial increase over the HD 7970 but falls much further against the GTX Titan. Yes the charts say Metro 2033 as the scripts I am using will need an update.
The percentile charts follow the results shown above with a smooth transition downward as you reach the 99th percentile. We see some spikes in the frame time charts from all of the cards in the comparisons. Although not really felt in game they are a factor. The FPS charts show how we get to the averages with the GTX 780 nicely filling the void between the GTX Titan and GTX 680.
