Firing up Metro Last Light, you can see that we're not able to get playable FPS at any resolution. It's not until we move up to the R9 280X that we see a playable number at 1680 x 1050. The same results are seen on the GTX 760 with numbers below 60 FPS across the board.

 

 

Nexuiz

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Nexuiz paints a similar picture to what we saw under Metro Last Light. This isn't a huge surprise considering the intensity of the game. You're going to really need to drop the detail levels down to bring those numbers up, even at the lowest resolution.
