Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider on Steam. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that you own a copy of this game. This automates the process of executing the game and using its built-in benchmark mode. Backs up old preferences (in ~/.local/share/feral-interactive/) for the run. NOTES for cross-platform comparisons: Due to the extreme demands of "Very High" 4K Texture Detail on all platforms, which can need ~6GB+ of VRAM, the "Very High" graphics preset on Linux only sets Texture Detail to "High". Nvidia ambient occlusion modes are not featured on the Linux version (HBAO+ and VXAO). See notes in install.sh for a few small tweaks including disabling the CPU governor check when testing for it's effects Learn more via the OpenBenchmarking.org test page.
