Metro Redux PC Review

Yup...it's a beast. If this game runs at 1080/60 on consoles, then the PC version is *way* beyond what they're delivering (this is 6 TFLOPs of GPU power). This benchmark is nearly entirely CPU-limited, however, while running both cards in SLI (especially throughout the first half), but limited by one overclocked 670 throughout the entirety, in single-card mode. In other words, you ain't running this anywhere near "maxed" on your laptop (unless it's a $3,000 Alienware). Real-world (during stage one), the game pushes both of my GPUs to their limits at 60 fps (frequently), and also exceeds the limits of the 2500K at times (when I step outside for the first time, fps drops into the 40s [entirely CPU-limited]). In short, you need both a powerful CPU and GPU pair to run this game the way it was meant to be run:

Hardware:

2500K @ 4.5 GHz
670 SLI @ 1.2 GHz (= 680 SLI @ stock speeds)

SLI (note that maximum frame rate SLI vs. single confirms that SLI is more than 83% effective in this case, despite not even having an official profile yet [I enabled AFR2 in Control Panel]):

Options: Resolution: 1920 x 1080; Quality: Very High; SSAA: Off; Texture filtering: AF 16X; Motion Blur: Normal; Tesselation: Very High; VSync: Off; Advanced PhysX: On;
Run 0 (Scene 1 )
*Total Frames: 3709, Total Time: 59.87078 sec
*Average Framerate: 62.05
*Max. Framerate: 231.59 (Frame: 3613)
*Min. Framerate: 22.95 (Frame: 828)

Single-card:

Options: Resolution: 1920 x 1080; Quality: Very High; SSAA: Off; Texture filtering: AF 16X; Motion Blur: Normal; Tesselation: Very High; VSync: Off; Advanced PhysX: On;
Run 0 (Scene 1 )
*Total Frames: 2537, Total Time: 59.88567 sec
*Average Framerate: 42.46
*Max. Framerate: 125.85 (Frame: 1769)
*Min. Framerate: 11.08 (Frame: 11)

Edit: 2033 Redux makes the original 2033 look "last-gen"...it simply blows it away. It's incredible. During the first stage, both of my GPUs remain nearly fully utilized almost the entire time (at the benched settings at 60 fps). I think we have a new graphics king, ladies and gents...

Edit 2: If you're in denial (as I was) (and downvoting, as a result), I suggest that you find a high-end system to play the game on--*then* formulate an opinion. Don't make assumptions at your own expense; my best advice.
Verdict:  80/100
