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.

Checking out Tomb Raider, you can see at 1680 x 1050, we've got what we would consider playable in this instance. While our average doesn't hit 60 FPS, we're not too far from it and the 40 FPS minimum is strong.

 

Going above that, though, you can see that performance isn't where we need it to be for solid gameplay performance. Compared to the more expensive GTX 760, you can see that the AMD offering is ahead at all resolutions, slightly.
