Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary, is the eighth release of the Tomb Raider series. It is a remake of the original Tomb Raider game from 1996 and includes all of the original 'worlds' from Tomb Raider. Created with an advanced version of the engine used for Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend, the gameplay mechanics, artificial intelligence and level puzzles of Tomb Raider: Anniversary are now more refined, in-depth and complex. The PC version of this title was released in North American on June 5, 2007.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary has a setting for full screen Anti-Aliasing that allows NVIDIA cards to run 16xQ AA and ATI cards to run at 4x AA. The highest Anti-Aliasing settings were used on both sets of cards at 1920x1200 to see how Quad GPUs do on this game title that actually comes bundled with many of the GeForce 9 series cards.
Results: This benchmark is a new one here at Legit Reviews and it continues to give us interesting results at 16xQ AA as the water cooled EVGA GTX280 beats the air cooled PNY by 6% at 1920x1200. The EVGA GTX 280 also takes a huge step forward over the XFX's 9800 GX2 series card with a 26% performance increase at maximum resolution.
