Radeon RX Vega 64 And RX Vega 56 Review: AMD Back In High-End Graphics

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 And 56 Rise Of The Tomb Raider Benchmarks

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a sequel to the 2013 reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, which takes protagonist Lara Croft back to her explorative “tomb raiding” roots in a deep origin story. The game, however, was updated and enhanced with new gameplay and combat mechanics. The game engine was updated as well, and offers DirectX 12 support, along with some stunning visuals. The benchmark outputs results from a number of maps; we’re reporting numbers from the “Geothermal Valley” here, along with the average score of all the maps. The game’s “Very High” graphics preset was used, and all graphics-related options were enabled.

Though DirectX 12 is in play here, both the Radeon Vega RX 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 fall victim in spots to their nearest rivals, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Here again, minimum frame rates tend to favor the AMD cards by just a shade, and in the taxing 4K resolution total score numbers, the Vega 56 regains its composure over the GeForce GTX 1070. Regardless, versus either new AMD Vega card, a GeForce GTX 1080 is faster overall.
