PowerColor R9 290X OC 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.

 

 

Settings:

  • DirectX 11
  • 2x MSAA
  • Global settings = High
  • PhysX = Off
  • DOF = Off

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 1920x1080 the R9 290X OC is markedly slower than the GTX Titan, but once you reach 5760x1080 the R9 290X OC pulls ahead. As you will see in the 4K testing we see the same result in this game.

 

FCAT Results:

At 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 the percentile charts are relatively flat showing that the amount of outside the normal frame times are not present in this game. We see a more gradual rise though in the 5760x1080 testing though. At 1920x1080 the frame times hang in the 20ms zone leading to a great game play experience while at 5760x1080 the experience gets a little sketchy.
