In the event GTC 2013 (NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference) in addition to their upcoming releases that are a work in progress in the coming months, NVIDIA has shown a preview of the game Metro: Last Light with nothing more and nothing less than 3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan graphics cards running together in 3-way SLI.
Metro: Last Light is a game developed by 4th Games (no longer THQ as in Metro 2033) and is sponsored by NVIDIA, and is expected to be launched in May this year. Although we have seen some trailers of the game, NVIDIA has been allowed the luxury of making a show of it.
The video was made with the following settings:
- DirectX 11.
- NVIDIA PhysX Advanced.
- Tessellation on.
- 2XSSAA (Sampling Anti-Aliasing).
- Resolution 1600p (2560 x 1600).
This is basically a graphical monstrosity today and few graphics cards would be able to put up a decent FPS, and that’s why you used an NVIDIA 3-way SLI GTX configuration with its famous Titan. This is the result:
Although it is a shame that we are not able to see the FPS during the game-play, it is clear that it does so in a way fluid, which suggests that it might not have been necessary to use 3 GTX Titan and “only” two would have been enough.
