Metro Exodus is a beautiful game that has great graphics, a good story, and a decent soundtrack. The title looks very good if you can max out the visual quality but in this case, the game becomes very heavy and hungry for system resources.
People with RTX video cards can activate ray-tracing – sure, it enhances the visual quality by some margin but the performance hit is serious. In this case, DLSS is a good idea and it’ll boost the FPS. For this comparison, we have prepared two decent video cards – the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (75W).

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)
|Metro Exodus||Full HD, Low (Check settings)||Full HD, High (Check settings)||Full HD, Extreme (Check settings)|
|GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [75W]||103 fps (+12%)||49 fps (+14%)||24 fps (+14%)|
|GeForce RTX 3050 [75W]||92 fps||43 fps||21 fps|
Both rivals perform well which is a pleasant surprise given the fact how heavy this game is. The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) is 13% faster compared to the RTX 3050 (75W). The performance difference between them isn’t huge but in some cases like Metro Exodus, the bigger GPU (perhaps) can offer a bit smoother experience.
It seems that the High preset is the way to go for both siblings – the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) version achieved 49 FPS which is okay for a single-player game (and if you aren’t too pretentious).
