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.

Overclocked, you can see some strong gains come from the ASUS R9 280X 3GB, which sees performance sit pretty much identical with the R9 290 4GB. This means that 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050 performance is great.

 

While 2560 x 1600 sees a strong minimum, you can see that the average isn't quite where it needs to be.
