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
PowerColor is performing quite well here at 1080p where in Shadow of War we have 105FPS average, beating the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X. We have 63FPS average in Metro Exodus, 1FPS faster than the MSI RX 5600 XT and Vega 56.
We're looking at over 100FPS average in Far Cry New Dawn at 1080p, a great result -- while Shadow of the Tomb Raider is just a single frame per second under 120FPS average. 1080p and over 100FPS ain't bad at all. In esports games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, you're going to see well over 100FPS with some tweaks to in-game visuals you will be looking at 144-160FPS+.
