Tomb Raider is a video game franchise which also includes comic books, novels, theme park rides and movies, centering around the adventures of the English archaeologist Lara Croft. Square Enix have rebooted the franchise with a DirectX 11 utilised game with Anti-Aliaising features and lighting effects.
Alongside Metro: Last Light, Tomb Raider is another game where I was really expecting the Iris Pro GPU to struggle. Surprisingly though even at the higher performance levels things are not that bad. Enabling Tres FX would not be advisable and to prove this I ran the benchmark again, the result being a set of single digit frame rates.
Surprisingly Tomb Raider ended up being one of the strongest games to run on the Brix Pro once the settings were dialled back. Pushing out nearly 40fps at 1680 x 1050 is well above what we regard as acceptable and overall this means that if you want to play a game on the Brix Pro, there is the capacity to do so.
