30-35 FPS 1920 × 1080 Low graphics settings Metro Exodus (Steam) on MacBook Air 2020 512GB with 8GB RAM and 8 GPU cores. Unfortunately couldn't get the Steam overlay FPS counter to work. However I estimate the framerate to be around 20-40 FPS using Low graphics settings at 1920x1080, which is absolutely incredible on this integrated fanless laptop. I could feel some stuttering in areas with complex geometry. However any issues experienced were minor and I could see myself playing this entire game all the way through at these settings, which is amazing for a AAA budget game that came out in 2019. youtube twitter Steam
