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 lets the overclocked MSI R9 290X 4GB Lightning OC see a nice boost in performance that lets the 2560 x 1600 average hit 61 FPS. Looking above, you can see it's the only setup that manages to break the 60 FPS barrier at that resolution. It's also accompanied by an extremely strong 49 FPS minimum.
