Sapphire R9 280X Toxic 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking at just the FPS numbers it's amazing to see that the Sapphire Toxic is delivering performance only eclipsed by the GTX 780 in this game at both 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 resolutions. A surprising start to the benchmarking on this card.

 

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. 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.
