Metro Exodus – The great RTX ON and Off benchmark for the GeForce RTX 2060, 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti with DLSS analysis and more | igorsLAB

Metro Exodus promises to be one of the blockbusters of 2019. In today's article, however, I do not want to judge the game itself, but only its "technological" aspect. Precisely because Metro Exodus had much more time for RTX On than for Battlefield V. Ray Tracing, DLSS, but also Advanced PhysX and HairWorks. But how does it work in practice? This detailed analysis will make it possible to find out exactly that.

Attention! Uncompressed PNG files in 4K!

Load times can be above average, but they are uncompressed files in maximum resolution. If you want to see differences and allow yourself a verdict, please do so. We already know the first scene, but this time after the patch and with new drivers:


This second scene shows the innovation in dealing with the ambient light really very beautiful:


And also the scene in the desert is new and with patch. But here, too, the differences are marginal and may well be due to the game and the loading sequence:


Nevertheless, one can not say it nicely: DLSS is a pixel accelerator, but also a pixel destroyer or pixel destroyer. -smear. This blurring is really not something you want to see all the time. Definitely needs to be improved here, all of this should prevail with the end user. Acceptance stands and falls on the visible quality. We have summarized the whole thing with the playability here:

Green stands for playable, yellow for so lala and red for impossible. Black means unnecessary, because it runs without these cards and therefore also looks better.


Summary and conclusion

Despite all the squeakers, the game makes a much more sophisticated and complete impression than Battlefield V. Thus Metro Exodus not only qualifies as a top game, but it is also recommended as a real blockbuster of 2019, even if there are certainly still some bangs to be expected. But for today and now, it's really a bang, RTX On or Off.

If you have a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, you can gamble without worry, but with a GeForce RTX 2070 it gets tight in QHD, because it should be the GeForce RTX 2080, if you don't want to hop around with the little rabbits. DLSS already priced in. In Full HD, it even does a GeForce RTX 2060, if only with DLSS help and a lot of eye pressure. Then the GeForce RTX 2070 is the cleaner of the lower price range. But it's not cheap.

Bottom line: game, beautiful effects and a spongy DLSS output. If that were improved, Battlefield V as rtX mascot is finally history. I already dream alb with puddles and reflective floors. Then i'd rather have an end-time mood than a shooter a la master propper. You can exaggerate it.
