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 sees the XFX R9 280X Double D Black Edition OC perform well against the GTX 770 2GB with a strong performance lead over it and playable FPS at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050.


The NVIDIA offering, on the other hand, falls a little short at 1920 x 1200. Compared to the reference clocked R9 280X 3GB from Visiontek, we also see a slight performance boost at all resolutions.
