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.

1440p Benchmark Performance Thoughts

This is where the faster GDDR6 memory comes into play: 2560 x 1440. PowerColor takes out Shadow of War at 1440p and equals the Radeon RX Vega 56 with 72FPS, and beats the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X by a single FPS.

We're getting 50FPS average in Metro Exodus, which is another 1FPS faster -- PowerColor is keeping just ahead of MSI in the benchmarks at both 1080p and 1440p. The same goes for Far Cry New Dawn where the PowerColor RX 5600 XT Red Dragon is pushing 90FPS at 1440p, leaving just 2FPS between it and the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider hums along at 80FPS average, just 2FPS better than the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X.
