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

This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark riseofthetombraider.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Graphics Preset: Very High - Anti Aliasing: FXAA - Scene: Spine Of The Mountain

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 202 public results since 5 December 2018 with the latest data as of 11 August 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
