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
You've got some great 1080p performance coming out of the TUF Gaming X3 Radeon RX 5700 XT EVO, with 127FPS average in Shadow of War -- an identical result to the reference RX 5700 XT. Over 60FPS in Metro Exodus (and 2FPS faster than the reference RX 5700 XT).
Far Cry New Dawn hums along with 108FPS average at 1080p, beating out the reference RX 5700 XT by 4FPS while Shadow of the Tomb Raider glides at 144FPS average -- once again, an identical result to the reference RX 5700 XT. It does all of this while running cooler and quieter than AMD's reference RX 5700 XT.
