AMD Radeon VII 16GB Video Card Review


Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Eidos Montral in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It continues the narrative from the 2013 game Tomb Raider and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, and is the twelfth mainline entry in the Tomb Raider series. The game released worldwide on 14 September 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is built using the Foundation engine as a basis. This is the same engine as Rise of the Tomb Raider, but it was dramatically enhanced by the Eidos Montreal R&D department, and pushed to its limit during game development.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider was benchmarked with the highest image quality settings with Temporal AA. V-Sync was disabled and we used the game titles built-in game benchmark.

Benchmark Results: AMD managed to pull off a 33% performance improvement over the Radeon RX Vega 64 card at 1440P and a 41% improvement at 4K with the Radeon VII. Solid improvements that put AMD just ahead of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Foudners Edition and behind the GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition in the benchmark results.
