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
Shadow of War enjoys the additional memory bandwidth that the new upgraded GDDR6 spec receives, with the ASRock Radeon RX 5600 XT Phantom Gaming D3 6G OC leaping out ahead of the stock BIOS -- and beating out MSI's custom RX 5600 XT GAMING X graphics card. It also beats the Radeon RX Vega 56 at 1080p in Shadow of War.
Metro Exodus receives the same love from the new BIOS from ASRock, where it's just 2FPS off of the higher-end Radeon RX 5700 at 1080p. It's 1FPS faster than the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X -- and 3FPS faster than its stock BIOS at 1080p in Metro Exodus -- not bad at all.
