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.

At both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050, you can see we've got some strong performance coming out of the new R9 290 4GB. Against the higher-end NVIDIA offerings, you can see we're trailing at all resolutions, but all our single GPU setups have trouble breaking the 60 FPS average at the highest resolution.
