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.




Looking at Tomb Raider, you can see we're shy of that 60 FPS number we want at 1680 x 1050. However, because we've got a minimum in the 40 FPS range, and the average is in the upper half of the 50 FPS range, we'd say this is playable. Moving to 1920 x 1200 though, while the minimum is in the 30's, the average of 48 FPS is just too low. Of course, that means 2560 x 1600 isn't an option.
