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.

Powering this engine at 4k much of an ask for the modest RX 480 graphics cards. Still the 8GB Nitro+ OC card stays toe to toe with the GTX 1060.
