Gaming: Shadow of the Tomb Raider (DX12)

The latest instalment of the Tomb Raider franchise does less rising and lurks more in the shadows with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. As expected this action-adventure follows Lara Croft which is the main protagonist of the franchise as she muscles through the Mesoamerican and South American regions looking to stop a Mayan apocalyptic she herself unleashed. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the direct sequel to the previous Rise of the Tomb Raider and was developed by Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics and was published by Square Enix which hit shelves across multiple platforms in September 2018. This title effectively closes the Lara Croft Origins story and has received critical acclaims upon its release.

The integrated Shadow of the Tomb Raider benchmark is similar to that of the previous game Rise of the Tomb Raider, which we have used in our previous benchmarking suite. The newer Shadow of the Tomb Raider uses DirectX 11 and 12, with this particular title being touted as having one of the best implementations of DirectX 12 of any game released so far.

    How many folks with GTX1080s would be using either of these CPUs tested (even if they were for sale)? :) Reply

    Someone that decided to start gaming, or changed to a game that required more graphics power so bought a graphics card. Maybe a kid whose parents bought a computer, or a hand-me-down computer. Even I have been gaming and building computers a long time and I have upgraded the graphics card on my computers several times around the middle of that system's lifetime (I keep them pretty long). I have friends that play WoW and needed to upgrade.There are plenty of situations.

    Have you seen gaming benchmarks with low end CPUs vs high end CPUs when both have the same high end graphics card?

    wrong power consumption test ...

    Ryzen 5 2500X get DDR4 2933 (1.3 V) vs coffe lake DDR4 2667 (1.2 V).

    (for Ryzen 5 2500X clock up ram freq to 3200, or downclock to 2667)

    The statement by Pajuk is actually not correct - the i5-8600k costs $288.96 boxed, the Ryzen 7 2700 229.99 - both at Newegg - so it's not the same price but $60 more. Reply
