AMD RX 6800 XT Review

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It continues the narrative from the 2013 game Tomb Raider and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, and is the twelfth mainline entry in the Tomb Raider series. The game released worldwide on 14 September 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. (Wikipedia).

Engine: Foundation Engine. We test using the Highest preset, with TAA, DX12 API.


Despite being an RTX posterchild, the RX 6800 XT is very competitive in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. At 1440p, there’s basically no difference between this GPU and the RTX 3080, with both delivering over 130FPS.

At 4K, the RTX 3080 manages an extra 5 FPS, so that means the RX 6800 XT is 7% slower at this resolution.
