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
I wouldn't go out and buy a Radeon RX 5600 XT for 4K gaming, but that doesn't mean it isn't capable of great 4K gaming. Even in something as intensive as Shadow of War we're looking at 43FPS average, 1FPS under MSI's custom RX 5600 XT GAMING X -- and 4FPS faster than the stock BIOS.
Metro Exodus is another punishing game but the ASRock Radeon RX 5600 XT Phantom Gaming D3 6G OC handles it like a champion, equaling the 30FPS average that the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X is capable of.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider cranks along at 40FPS average, beating the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X by a single FPS, and is 2FPS faster than the stock BIOS. Far Cry New Dawn is enjoyable at 4K, with 46FPS average (and once again 1FPS slower than the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X) at 4K.
