ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX 8GB Video Card Review


Metro Last Light


Metro: Last Light is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ukrainian studio 4A Games and published by Deep Silver. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world and features action-oriented gameplay with a combination of survival horror elements. It uses the 4A Game engine and was released in May 2013.


Metro: Last Light was benchmarked with very high image quality settings with the SSAA set to off and 4x AF. These settings are tough for entry level discrete graphics cards, but are more than playable on high-end gaming graphics cards. We benchmarked this game title on the Theater level.


We again found around 20% CPU usage on Metro: Last Light.


Benchmark Results: In Metro: Last Light the ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX was slightly faster than the GeForce GTX 970 and slower than the AMD Radeon R9 Nano. In fact, it split the performance difference between those two cards rather nicely.
