Metro: Last Light


Showing 6 comments.
The Fury X is massively underutilized. If games fully used this GPU the GTX 1080 would lag behind. That situation never happens though
my gues is that they hit a memory limitation with only 4gig VRAM. if you do that you get a heavy penalty.
so no really much adventage whit the monstrosous bandwich in the r9 right?
yeah must be something wrong there.
This seems off to me. Metro: Last Light only gets under 40 FPS average on a Fury X?
EVGA 1080 SC omg
