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 numbers look strong at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. We also see that the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB offers a strong boost over the GTX 770 2GB, which falls short at 1920 x 1200. At 2560 x 1600 though, we can see the 31 FPS minimum and 41 FPS average just aren't where they need to be.
