Thanks to an FPS wall that is hit quite easily on higher-end cards at the lower resolutions, you can see that our high-end AMD setups perform very close to each other with really nothing more than a bit of fluctuation being seen between them. With the newer high Hz monitors coming out, we'd really love to see AMD fix this with a possible driver update.

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Tomb Raider performance is solid, and you can see the OC'ed HIS card is ahead of the 60 FPS average we want at all resolutions. At the highest resolution, you can see the 64 FPS average is accompanied by a really strong 51 FPS minimum.
