Tomb Raider is an action-adventure platform video game. Published by Square Enix, Tomb Raider is the fifth title developed by Crystal Dynamics in the Tomb Raider franchise. As the first entry in a new Tomb Raider continuity, the game is a reboot that emphasizes the reconstructed origins of the culturally influential lead character Lara Croft. Tomb Raider was released on 5 March 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows to universal critical acclaim.

Tomb Raider sees a bump at all resolutions. The one that takes our attention the most, though, is the 2560 x 1600 test. We see the average move from 53 FPS to 59 FPS. While we normally would always prefer to be in the 60 FPS range, the 44 FPS minimum means we're happy to except this average.

 

In the end, we've got smooth gameplay across the board, and you can see, the overclocked 290X is ahead of the heavily overclocked GTX 780 Lightning at all resolutions.
