Metro Last Light

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Metro Last Light performance is strong at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 with solid playable numbers seen. At the highest resolution, we see the card fall short of the 60 FPS number we want for a solid gaming experience, like all our other setups here.

 

Against the competition, you can see it's sitting between the R9 290 4GB and heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB, with the lean being more towards the higher-end AMD offering than the lower-end one.

 

 

Nexuiz

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Nexuiz performance I've found is a little weird on the new GTX 900 Series cards. In this case, you can see numbers that fall in line with the R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X. We're not sure if it's the driver or something else. It's probably fair to say, though, that Nexuiz isn't a game that NVIDIA is paying a ton of attention to.
