Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the follow-up 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.

Having the highest factory clock speeds of any of the R9 290X cards tested, you can see that the performance curve follows the clock speed; something I am sure will be shown through the majority of the results. The PowerColor R9 290X PCS+ delivers smooth gameplay with really tight frame time variances in this game.
