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
Don't go out and buy any GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER for 4K gaming and expect 60FPS+ out of the box on Ultra settings, but still -- games like Shadow of War on the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced OC-V run at over 60FPS at 4K.
Metro Exodus is a little more punishing here with 39FPS average, which is 3FPS better than the RTX 2070 SUPER FE -- meanwhile we hit 61FPS in Far Cry New Dawn, which is identical to the last-gen GTX 1080 Ti. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is near identical, with 62FPS average -- except here the GTX 1080 Ti loses to the RTX 2070 SUPER.
