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
The Radeon RX Vega 64 LCE holds its ground at 2560 x 1440, where in Shadow of War it reaches 82FPS average -- the same as the Navi-based RX 5700. It's 9FPS slower than the GTX 1080 Ti and RX 5700 XT, and nearly 50FPS slower than the RTX 2080 Ti which is just absolutely stomping here at 1440p in Shadow of War.
Metro Exodus has the RX Vega 64 LCE at 53FPS average, an identical result to the RTX 2070 and 1FPS away from the RX 5700, although there's a huge 27FPS gap between the RX Vega 64 LCE and RTX 2080 Ti here at 1440p.
Far Cry New Dawn hums along with 93FPS alongside the RX 5700 with the same result, while the RX 5700 XT is ahead at 98FPS and the RTX 2080 Ti stretching the limits at 110FPS.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is smooth at 90FPS average, 1FPS better than the RX 5700 and 14FPS slower than the RX 5700 XT -- which sees the RTX 2080 Ti far out and ahead with 44FPS more than the RX Vega 64 LCE with 134FPS average.
