Powercolor Devil R9 270X 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
- 2x MSAA
- Global settings = High
- PhysX = Off
- DOF = Off
At 1920 x 1080 you get a playable almost 32 FPS out of the Devil R9 270X while at 5760 x 1080 it just just does not have enough muscle to deliver that same experience. Compared to the GTX 660 and Devil HD 7870 we see about a 2 FPS margin between the old and new variants while getting performance levels that are dead on with the GTX 660.
In both resolutions the frame time percentile charts show that there are not a lot of issues to worry about. The frame times show roughly the same picture with a tight frame time analysis at 1920 x 1080. At 5760 x 1080 you will need a more robust card or a reduction in settings to get playable frame rates in this game.
