MSI GTX780 Lightning 3GB Graphics Card Review

MetroLast Light takes place one year after the events of Metro 2033, proceeding from the ending where Artyom chose to call down the missile strike on the Dark Ones. The Rangers have since occupied the D6 military facility, with Artyom having become an official member of the group. Khan, the nomad mystic, arrives at D6 to inform Artyom and the Rangers that a single Dark One survived the missile strike.

4A Games’ proprietary 4A Engine is capable of rendering breathtaking vistas, such as those showing the ruined remnants of Moscow, as well as immersive indoor areas that play with light and shadow, creating hauntingly beautiful scenes akin to those from modern-day photos of Pripyat’s abandoned factories and schools.

We are using the built in Metro Last Light benchmark with very high image quality settings, shown in the image above. We test at both 1920×1080 and 2560×1600 resolutions.

These settings are very intensive and show the hardware in the worst possible light. The MSI GTX780 Lightning manages to outperform the GTX Titan, by a couple of frames per second.
metro 2560
These settings expand the differential in frame rate between the GTX Titan and the GTX 780 Lightning. Neither maintains a smooth frame rate throughout but it is interesting to observe the changes.

It is worth pointing out that by disabling SSAA the frame rates increase significantly.

Fortunately for Intel, however, such events have conspired in their favour as the company is now presented with a monumental opportunity to seize the discrete GPU market. They simply can't miss - can they?
