NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M Mobility Performance Testing
Metro: Last Light
Metro: Last Light (DirectX 11)
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.
Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.
As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
Both the HD 7970M and the GTX 780M do well in our Metro Last Light testing with fairly narrow bands of frame times. The AMD result sees 2-3 ms variations about 70% of the time while NVIDIA only has them for about 30% of our test run. Neither resulted in a very noticeable effect in the gameplay though. The average frame rate over the 60 seconds of game play for the GTX 780M was about 32% faster than that of the Radeon HD 7970M in our testing.
