Metro : 2033 and Last Light

PowerColor R9 295X2 Review

Metro

Metro has always been one of the worst optimised games around and Last Light was even worse than 2033, if you can imagine something as difficult to believe as that nugget of information. At these resolutions 2033 rocks up on the 295X2 with 76FPS, but down in Last Light territory a mere 30. Suffice to say that if you ever want to play a game that isn't a slideshow, avoid Metro. Which is a shame as it's a great idea let down by a shabby engine.

oooh finally


I really want to see a 240 rad version. That would save the temperature issue. Kinda interesting to see that the fan that comes with the rad is crap/an airflow fan.

Red lighting. Do like. Especially now it doesn't have that weird thing on the fan.Quote

Top review Guv

Was it really that noticeable the card effecting the ambient temps and to push the CPU up by 10c...

I'm not surprised in the slightest about the 120 rad being unsuitable.. I mean come on AMD for 2 full fledged hawaii chips.. really. As Barnsley said it really should have been a 240 rad or at least the ability to somehow add it into a custom loop like the Poseidon.Quote

oohh gawd.. i thought the original 2xx series cards were ugly enough, but this takes the biscuit.. its the worst looking card ive ever seen. i would dodge it on that basis alone, if i had the money to afford one. it would be a 780Ti for me every time.Quote

Great review as always guv. There's a bit of a typo in the conclusion, though. It reads "patently" instead of "blatantly".

Edit: Sorry I cannot English today Quote

No the Guv is right.

"Patently"

Meaning In a patent manner; openly, plainly, or clearly.. Quote
