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 where the Radeon RX 5600 XT is punished the most, at 4K -- where starting with Shadow of War it is pumping out just 35FPS which loses to the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 SUPER graphics cards.
Metro Exodus sees the SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 5600 XT PULSE OC managing just 30FPS average, which is actually equal to the Radeon RX 5700 -- an impressive feat. Far Cry New Dawn is actually not too bad at 48FPS average, so with some detail tweaks you could easily hit 60FPS average, while Shadow of the Tomb Raider manages just 40FPS powered by the RX 5600 XT at 4K.
