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.

Getting into Tomb Raider, you can see strong performance that is again ahead of the GTX 770 2GB at all resolutions.

 

Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, we would say while the minimum is strong, the average isn't where we want it to be with 46 FPS being too low for solid gameplay.
