Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
Now we’re getting into the territory of a game more optimized for the higher performance GPUs. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an awesome game and part of a long-lasting franchise. It supports full DX12 along with new RTX features which we may start to include in testing once Radeon options have ray-tracing capabilities enabled. We run at max details at DX12 with RTX and DLSS disabled.
shadow of the Tomb Raider is a newer title and the newest in the Tomb Raider Franchise. This game can be extremely heavy on the GPU while being playable and great overall graphics. With that being said we see the 5600 XT fall right where you expect it, which is incline between the lower 1660 SUPER and the RTX 2060 above it.
Far Cry 5
Far Cry has been a great series of games and the newest takes on a cult-like group in the rural USA. This entry into the Far Cry franchise has some great visuals and can definitely put your GPU to work being a much newer game.
Far Cry 5 shows the RX 5600 XT pulling ahead of the RTX 2060 at 1080p but it quickly falls back into line and is more of the same at 1440p and 4K. This is interesting as this card is targeted at 1080p and it seems to do quite well there.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Ghost Recon Wildlands is an awesome squad-based shooter that has tons of varying terrain, vehicle play and plenty of eye candy via explosions and particle effects to make your GPU cry.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a veritable torture test of a game that now shows a reverse of what Far Cry 5 was showing. Here, the RX 5600 XT falls in line as expected at 1080p, and 1440p. However, 4K the RX 5600 XT pulls a small but defined lead ahead of the RTX 2060 which means the 5600 XT is punching a bit above its weight class.
Now that we see the performance, next up is to see how far can we push it?
