Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Review |

DirectX 11 - Metro: Last Light


In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised underground. Having never ventured beyond the city limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat.

This is a benchmark which takes no prisoners.  The combination of ‘Very High’ quality, SSAA and ‘Very High’ Tessellation brings the best graphics cards to their knees.  However, today we witness true GPU muscle – the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti powers through the benchmark and results in an impressive 113 FPS average – the first card to have reached triple digits in this test.  Surely 1440p will be out of reach?….

Finally, we have found a benchmark that can even begin to tame the beast.  Whilst the other cards in our test struggle to maintain 30 FPS, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti charges on and maintains a superb 76 FPS result.  Can it run Metro at 1440p maxed out?  Yes it can! 🙂


  1. Now that’s a damned fine review Mr T. 😉
    You make me regret going with the EVGA 1080 Ti SC (Superclocked) GPU after reading this. 🙂
