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.
1080p Benchmark Performance Thoughts
At 1080p, we have the new ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Phantom Gaming graphics card beating out the MSI Radeon RX 5500 XT GAMING X. In every single test it is equaling or out-performing the MSI variant, all while offering stellar 1080p performance for the money, in a nice small package.
There's some great performance here in the ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Phantom Gaming, where you'll be soaring over 100-120FPS average in esports games like Apex Legends and Overwatch at 1080p if you dial down some of those detail levels.
