    Rise of the Tomb Raider

    Tomb Raider is one of the oldest game franchises that has spawned numerous sequels and even spilled over to the silver screen.  In this 3rd person game you follow Laura as she navigates the hub and spoke style of gameplay that borrows elements from the Uncharted series.  We used the Prophets Tomb benchmark sequence for this test in both DX11 and DX12

    Benchmark Settings
    Preset Very High
    Texture Quality Very High
    Texture Filter Anisotropic 16x
    Anit Aliasing FXAA
    Level of Detail Very High
    Depth of Field Very High
    Tessellation On

    The curves between DX11 and DX12 are almost identical with the game favoring DX12 due to the large frame buffer and increased memory bandwidth.  Scores in both rendering engines are pretty close which seems to indicate that we have a hardware limitation here.

    Sadly, the previous scores appear to be bugged when compared to the RTX 4070 but, look at those DLSS numbers, off the charts!!
