Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a sequel to the popular Shadow of Mordor, which was powered by the Lithtech engine. When cranked up to maximum detail, it will chew through your GPU and its VRAM like it's nothing.
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 what I'm here for: 4K or 3840 x 2160.
AMD touted that its HBM and HBCC technologies would work wonders in high resolution gaming scenarios, so let's see how it holds up 5 years later.
Oh yeah -- it sucks.
Shadow of War? 33FPS average, beating out the Radeon RX 570/580/590 finally, but losing to the GTX 1070 and RX 5500 XT graphics cards. The Radeon RX 5700 XT on the other hand pushes out a much better 55FPS average.
The Radeon R9 Fury X gets it ass handed to it in Metro Exodus, where it is only capable of 15FPS at 4K. It matches the Radeon RX 480 (hah) but loses to every single Radeon RX 500 series card (haha). The Radeon RX 5500 XT has 20FPS here, while the flagship Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 XT pushes ahead with 33FPS average.
Far Cry New Dawn is still hardcore on the R9 Fury X, which manages just 26FPS average at 4K -- identical to the RX 570, and 3FPS behind the RX 580. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is just 1FPS off of 30FPS, this time matching the RX 5500 XT for once.
