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.
1440p Benchmark Performance Thoughts
I decided to spend many more hours on benchmark charts for you guys, so I could illustrate in the previous pages how the Radeon R9 Fury X stacks up against ALL of the graphics cards -- but in these charts, I've used only AMD Radeon graphics cards to see how the Fury X stacks up against its own Radeon brethren.
We should see the Radeon R9 Fury X scale up and take some wins the higher the resolution we go, with Shadow of War seeing the Fury X beating out the Radeon RX 480, RX 570, RX 580, and RX 590. It loses still to the new GDDR6-packed Radeon RX 5500 XT by 10FPS at 1440p.
Metro Exodus sees similar drops, with the Fury X falling under the Radeon RX 590, with 33FPS average -- losing by 1FPS to the RX 590. The Radeon RX 5500 XT actually loses to the Fury X here -- but by a single frame per second.
Far Cry New Dawn sees AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X being the fourth-slowest card in the AMD Radeon cards, with the Radeon RX 5500 XT being 3FPS faster at 1440p. The AMD-friendly Shadow of the Tomb Raider has the Fury X falling off a cliff down to 48FPS average, just 5FPS better than the RX 480 -- and 8FPS slower than the RX 5500 XT.
