The original Tomb Raider, unlike its sequel, contains an integrated benchmarking tool to provide very accurate results. Currently, we’ve decided to keep benchmarking the game for this reason alone, but the situation might change after hearing reader feedback. As you can see, the graphics card is able to reach an absurdly high frame-rate at 1920×1080 and pulled away from its nearest competitor by a surprising amount. I’m not entirely sure why the GTX 980Ti Xtreme Gaming is ahead by such a margin but it might be down to the boost clock running higher.
Setting the monitor to 2560×1440 reduces the frame-rate by a large amount but it’s not enough to impact on the user-experience. As you can see, it’s perfectly feasible to obtain a minimum frame-rate of 120 with this particular GPU.
The graphics card is powerful enough to maintain a minimum frame-rate of 60 and performs superbly when you take into account the number of pixels being driven.
