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.
This is a great looking engine, but at 1080p it proves little challenge to any of the high end hardware on the market today. The Asus Republic Of Gamers Strix GTX 1080 maintains an average of 150 frames per second. Total overkill unless you are gaming with a 120hz or 144hz panel.
