Gears 5 is the latest in The Coalition's huge franchise, with the game made on Unreal Engine 4. It looks great, and chews through even the latest GPUs. I benchmarked it at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K in a separate article and even did some 8K benchmarking at 7680 x 4320.
Borderlands 3 is also made on Unreal Engine 4 but developer Gearbox Software took it in a different route visually, to say the least. You'll want some high FPS in this game, and some of the more 'mid-range' cards do well while the game looks great. Once again, I tested this at 8K here.
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.
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.
1080p Benchmark Performance Thoughts
MSI provides some kick ass performance with its Radeon RX 5700 GAMING X, beating out the reference RX 5700 as expected. In games like Gears 5 you can run everything pretty much maxed out and still maintain 100FPS+ average.
Borderlands 3 can be maxed out at 1080p on the MSI RX 5700 GAMING X and you're still getting 71FPS, up 6FPS from the reference RX 5700 with 65FPS. Shadow of War is a punishing game at higher resolutions but here at 1080p we're still looking at a huge 124FPS average with the RX 5700 GAMING X.
Overall, better than reference RX 5700 performance at much quieter noise levels and operating temperatures.
