Gigabyte RX 5700 XT GAMING OC 8G Review: Tomb Raider And Strange Brigade

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the latest addition to 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, including support for some ray tracing technologies. The benchmark outputs a handful of different results; we're reporting the GPU performance and 95th-percentile numbers using the game's "highest” quality graphics preset...

Once again we see the Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC finishing ahead of AMD's reference design, but just a hair behind the higher-clocked PowerColor Red Devil.



The 95th percentile frame rates tell the same story, though the Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC and Red Devil finishing right on top of each other.
Strange Brigade
DirectX 12 (Or Vulcan!) Benchmarks
Strange Brigade is a third-person action game set in Egypt in the 1930s that takes gamers on an various adventures to explore ruins, solve puzzles, and uncover valuable treasures, while also blasting through an array of un-dead enemies. This game has both DirectX and Vulcan code paths and makes use of Asynchronous Compute as well. We tested Strange Bridge with its Ultra graphics preset with A-Sync compute enabled at a couple of resolutions.

The Strange Brigade benchmark tells the same story as Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, with the Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC edging out the reference 5700 XT but a small margin.


Render times in Strange Brigade jibe with the average frame rate data and show the Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC outrunning the reference card at both resolutions.
