Sapphire RX 480 Nitro + OC 4GB & 8GB Review

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a third-person action-adventure game that features similar gameplay found in 2013’s Tomb Raider. Players control Lara Croft through various environments, battling enemies, and completing puzzle platforming sections, while using improvised weapons and gadgets in order to progress through the story. It uses a Direct X 12 capable engine.

We enable Direct X 12, Vsync is off and graphics are set to the ‘very high’ profile, shown above. We test the Nvidia Titan Z with the SLi optimisation both disabled, then enabled. This is clearly marked in the graph. See more HERE.

At 1440p we would consider 30fps+ borderline playable, but many people want closer to 60 fps for smoothness. Again either dialling down the image quality settings or spending more on a higher level graphics card would be advisable.
