Level of Battlefield 3 or Crysis

almost consistently very high resolution
(2,048 x 2,048 pixels) and with
Parallax Occlusion Mapping garnished.

Anti-aliasing: appearance and performance
Thanks to the consistent focus on the DX11 API provides Metro Last Light
addition to a shader-based supersampling antialiasing.
The newly integrated into the DX11 renderer mix of Analytical AA (AAA) and FXAA
is automatically activated in the level of detail "Very High" and even, as in the
is to see the second image, very good. For a perfect smoothing of polygon edges
you must enable supersampling antialiasing separately. Note
In mind that the option "0.5" (Fig. 1) upscaling process takes place,
which provides for a washed-out look - which explains the increase in fps rate
below the benchmark. The option "4x", the quiet for a pleasant view
ensures (Fig. 3) and in which the frame rate from 54 fps to 17 fps (benchmark system they hey)
falls, only cars like the Geforce GTX 690/Titan are grown.

Funny how some people think Crysis is a demanding. Metro is on another level.
Muffins1223  +   716d ago
Yes it is "demanding" but this one seems to run about the same as the last one so its much more optimized.
Plagasx  +   716d ago
Can I get 60fps with a single gtx 680? Sorry, I don't understand that article..
ninjahunter  +   716d ago
Looks like it would float between 45 and 60. They mention though that the game will probably run better at release, and even better once new drivers and patches roll out.
