NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 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
Overall the GTX 760 delivers roughly the same performance as a factory overclocked GTX 660 Ti at 1920x1080 and presents a significant up swing in performance over the HD 7950 and HD 7870 Myst. At 5760x1080 the GTX 760 vs GTX 660Ti relationship is still similar while it out performs the HD 7870. Sadly the HD 7950 I have bit the dust after running the 1920x1080 results.
Here in the percentile charts the GTX 760 delivers performance below the GTX 660Ti for most of the run at 1920x1080 but is still well ahead of the HD 7950 and HD 7870. At 5760x1080, the GTX 760's improved memory bandwidth lifts its performance above that of the GTX 660Ti and HD 7870. Frame times at 1920x1080 are not bad with some spikes that drive FPS averages while at 5760x1080 the frame times open up with fewer spikes. Yes, the charts say Metro 2033 as the scripts I am using will need an update.
