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
We start off the benchmarks with the ASUS TUF Gaming X3 Radeon RX 5700 EVO hitting 124FPS in Shadow of War -- not bad considering the higher-end RX 5700 XT (TUF Gaming X3 OC model) has 127FPS average.
Metro Exodus is close, with 68FPS average -- identical to the GeForce RTX 2070, and 4FPS away from the reference RX 5700 XT. Far Cry New Dawn performance is no surprise, with over 100FPS average out of the card while Shadow of the Tomb Raider has 132FPS average -- identical to the GTX 1080 Ti.
