Metro Last Light performance at 4K is really interesting. Moving from one to two cards brings with it a really strong performance gain. As we move to three and four card setups, you can see there's just no performance gains.

 

After testing the TITAN 6GB cards from NVIDIA, we'd say that we're actually hitting a limitation in the video card RAM here as those the TITAN offerings brought with it really strong performance gains at the higher resolution.

 

It will be really interesting to see what Metro Last Light performance looks like with an 8GB version of the GTX 980 - if they are even ever released, that is.

Single card performance under Nexium is consistently low. When we throw a second card into the mix, performance is much better and double where you think the single card should be.

 

To give you an idea on the intensity, though, you can see that adding a third card into the mix the FPS is still below the 60 FPS average that we're on the hunt for. It's not until we throw a fourth card into the mix that we hit playable FPS with a solid 83 FPS being seen.
