Metro Exodus is one of the hardest tests that our graphics cards have to go through, with 4A Games' latest creation being one of the best looking games on the market. It is a serious test that pushes GPUs to their limits, and also features RTX technologies like DLSS.

Far Cry New Dawn was developed by Ubisoft, and is powered the Dunia Engine, an engine that has been modified over the years for Far Cry and last used in Far Cry 5. Dunia Engine itself was a modified version of CRYENGINE, scaling incredibly well on all sorts of hardware.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is one of the latest games to join our graphics card benchmark lineup, with the game built using the Foundation engine as a base, the same engine in Rise of the Tomb Raider. Eidos Montreal R&D department made lots of changes to the engine during the development of Shadow of the Tomb Raider to make it one of the best-looking games out right now.

4K Benchmark Performance Thoughts

This is where I'm the most interested to see how they perform: 3840 x 2160, or 4K.

NVIDIA's older GeForce GTX 980 Ti is still alright at 4K in Shadow of War with 33FPS average, but the new lower-end champion in the Radeon RX 5500 XT is a mini high-res champ (at least compared to an older-gen high-end card) with 36FPS average. The GTX 1080 Ti chews through Shadow of War at 4K with 58FPS average, while the RTX 2080 Ti handles it like it's 1080p with a huge 87FPS.

Metro Exodus pushes the GTX 980 Ti into second-to-last place at 4K with 20FPS average, the same as the RX 5500 XT. But the GTX 1080 Ti is still strong(er) with 36FPS and the RTX 2080 Ti is slaying it here at 4K with 51FPS average.

Far Cry New Dawn still crushes the GTX 980 Ti at 4K, reducing it to just 34FPS -- but the GTX 1080 Ti is close to twice as fast with 61FPS average, and the RTX 2080 Ti out in front with 81FPS average. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is also punishing on the GTX 980 Ti which reduces it to just 28FPS average, the GTX 1080 Ti is still awesome at 58FPS while the RTX 2080 Ti is far ahead with 82FPS average.
