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 manages to see some great performance gains across the board. You can see at the highest resolution that the overclock on the Sapphire R9 290X TRI-X 4GB OC manages to push our average FPS to a solid 62 FPS from the 53 FPS number seen on the reference-clocked card. We also see the minimum get a strong increase from 41 FPS to 47 FPS.
