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.

1080p Benchmark Performance Thoughts

This is where AMD is aiming with its new Radeon RX 5500 XT: 1080p gaming. It does well here, hitting the same performance levels of the Polaris-based Radeon RX 580/590 in games like Shadow of Mordor, where that faster GDDR6 memory can stretch its legs.

You can still enjoy gorgeous games like Far Cry New Dawn at 1080p and a more-than-playable 80FPS average on the SAPPHIRE RX 5500 XT PULSE OC graphics card, beating out NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. Another great looking game that performs well at over 60FPS average is Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

We have 68FPS average on the SAPPHIRE RX 5500 XT PULSE OC, which beats the GTX 1650 and is just 4FPS off of the faster GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card.
