Metro Exodus PC Performance Review - RTX On!

Older Hardware? Metro on the Radeon R9 380 and Geforce GTX 960

On older 2GB graphics cards like the R9 380 and GTX 960, we found that Metro Exodus needs a lot of adjustments to run well, with the R9 380 2GB running into issues even while using the game's low settings and a sub-sampled 1080p resolution. 

Both GPUs performed better under the DirectX 11 API, likely due to memory constraints, though the GTX 960 fares a lot better when using the games lower graphics. Achieving a 30+ FPS framerate is more than possible here, but we are clearly entering into an era where 2GB graphics cards will not be enough for gaming anymore. There is a reason why Nvidia released a 3GB GTX 1050 last year...

Thanks Tom. Getting this done on time was an undertaking...

I only got access to Nvidia's RTX hardware very recently, so this required a lot of late night work to get done in time. Almost didn't.Quote

Having looked yes that was a mad amount of work haha.

Nice to see Vega doing so well again in DX12. I will probably end up playing it on my 64 at 1080p.Quote
