In other news, modder MaLDo has come up with some interesting findings about Metro: Last Light. According to MaLDo, the following SLI bits (0x080600F5 for DX11 and 0x02400205 for DX9) offer better scaling, though they introduce a graphical glitch with the game’s flares. This further proves that Metro: Last Light’s default SLI profile does not scale as good as we’d hoped to (something we’ve already covered in our Performance Analysis).
Furthermore, MaLDo suggested a way to minimize the stuttering side-effect of Metro: Last Light. Even though we did not notice significant improvements with this method, we believe that there is a number of users that may get benefit from it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
