PC specs for Metro: Last Light detailed, recommends Titan for optimum graphics

Metro: Last Light

By on April 18, 2013 at 10:12 am

Deep Silver and 4A have released the system requirements for the PC version of Metro: Last Light, revealing a few interesting facts — one of them being that they’re taking the unusual step of continuing to support Windows XP.

The listing also shows a video card of a GTX 580/660 Ti or AMD 7870 as the general recommended spec to run the game, which should hopefully indicate that there’s a glorious world of graphics awaiting us in those Russian tunnels. An NVIDIA Titan is recommended as the top-end card, but somehow I don’t think a lot of people will be able to pull that off at a price tag of $1200.

Check out the specs below:

Minimum

  • Windows: XP (32-Bit), Vista, 7 or 8
  • CPU: 2.2 GHz Dual Core e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Direct X: 9.0c
  • Graphics Card: DirectX 9, Shader Model 3 compliant e.g. NVIDIA GTS 250 (or AMD equivalent e.g. HD Radeon 4000 series) or higher

For 3D Vision Support:

  • NVIDIA GTX 275 or higher
  • 120Hz Monitor
  • NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

Recommended

  • Windows: Vista, 7 or 8
  • CPU: 2.6 GHz Quad Core e.g. Intel Core i5
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Direct X: 11
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 580/660 Ti (or AMD equivalent e.g. 7870) or higher

For 3D Vision Support:

  • NVIDIA GTX 580/660Ti or higher
  • 120Hz Monitor
  • NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

Optimum

  • Windows: Vista, 7 or 8
  • CPU: 3.4 GHz Multi-Core e.g. Intel Core i7
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Direct X: 11
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 690 / NVIDIA Titan

For 3D Vision Support:

  • NVIDIA GTX 690
  • 120Hz Monitor
  • NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

Looks like I wont be buying this game until the new vid cards are out.

 

pantyraider,

I was thinking the same, but a 670/680 will still beat the pants off this game, just if you want to play at 1080p or higher with every single bell and whistle enabled and still keep 60fps+, get a Titan :D

 

The specs are what you could expect, considering in Metro 2033 running DX11 Advanced DOF will give you a massive performance drop to an average 30fps with a single GTX 680 in some areas. So yeah GTX 690 / Titan would be ultra high setting with a steady 60fps

 

Hey they said Optimum was SLI 680s as well, don’t scare me like that!

Well SLI 680 is slightly faster than 690, and SLI 670 with slight OC is practically the same as SLI 680 so I will be fine with my 670′s I reckon :)

 

That feel when my 7870 is now in the recommended requirements. ow… soon it’s gonna be minimum *tear*

 
kinistoniscool

it is going to take about 2 years for titan to price drop, i bought my ati radeon 4850 for $1000 5 years ago, now around $100

 

Good old 6990 + 6970 tri-fire. *pats his tower*

 

Surely “optimum” means high resolutions or multiple screens, and anything decent should be fine for 1080p.

Requiring a Titan for 60fps at 1080 would be madness. At least the masses running a Titan under Windows XP will be satisfied.

 

:)

that’ll do pig , that’ll do.

 

Maybe if that game was optimised a bit better, like it should have been in Metro 2033, then it could run on a lower card. I get the whole “I wanna push my computer” bragging thing, but some times these devs need to make a game playable rather than as a 10 hour long benchmarking tool.

 

Recommending a Titan is just silly, I can’t help but think there might be some Nvidia dollars at play here. Unless Optimum means triple screen setups or 1440p or something silly like that.

 

i dunno what the fuss is all aboot, it has min, recommended and optimum specs listed.

i’d be more worried if optimum spec was a 680 gtx.

would mean they havnt pushed the boundries with all the graphical eye candys that are available at the moment like they did with 2033

(which is one of the reasons it was used as a game benchmark test for alot of review sites)

 

I got a;
Athlon II 620
7GB DDR2 mem
XFX 5770.

800×600 Screen resolution here i come :)

 

Am I the only one who thinks that supporting XP in a game with the recommended hardware requirements noted above is a bad idea?
