Metro Last Light is ultimately VRAM limited at this massive resolution. Not only do we not see much change as far as the FPS numbers go, but the difference between the 2-way and 4-way GTX 980 4GB performance was pretty much nothing as all three setups bounced off this low 50 FPS range, a number that is ultimately too low to be playable.

Nexuiz performance was quite interesting. Looking above, you can see that the two setups really are separated by a significant margin with the X99 setup being nearly double that of the X79 one. It's more than possible that Nexuiz is really able to make use of the extra processor features that are on offer here, something that most other games can't do.
