GeForce RTX 2060 & 2070 Super: Tomb Raider And Strange Brigade

Shadow 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 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 maximum “Very High” graphics preset was used, and all graphics-related options were enabled as well.

The Radeon VII is able to finish out in front of the GeForce RTX 2070 Super here, by a couple of frames per second at both resolutions. Where the original RTX 2060 trailed the Radeon RX Vega 64, however, the new GeForce RTX 2060 Super edges it out at both resolutions.

The 95 percentile frame rates show a similar performance trend. The new Super GeForces consistently maintain higher frame rates than their predecessors (as you would expect).

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 Radeon VII jumped out into the lead in the Strange Brigade benchmark and Radeon RX Vega 64 is able to outpace the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. Versus their predecessors though, the new GeForce RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 Super offer significantly better performance.

Render times in Strange Brigade jibe with the average frame rates here. The higher-end cards typically render each frame just a but faster, and the overall trend is in-line with expectations.
