Rise of the Tomb Raider update - Has AMD Performance Ryzen?

 
It may be the middle of Computex, but that shouldn't get in the way of some good auld hardware testing. Square Enix has today released title update 12 for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC, bringing with it come performance improvements for Ryzen-based systems when using the game's newer DirectX 12 code path. 
 
This update begs an obvious question, how much does this change the game's performance? This article will provide you with the answer to this question, as thanks to ASUS and Corsair our gaming boffin now has some Ryzen hardware to test future game releases. 

Will this new update cause AMD's performance to rise up? Let's find out. 

  

  Rise of the Tomb Raider's latest patch includes Ryzen CPU optimisations

GPU Driver

We will be testing this game using our GTX 1080 Founders Edition, using Nvidia's newest GPU driver at the time of writing, driver version 382.33.

Test Hardware

We will be conducting our performance testing using ASUS' Crosshair VI Hero motherboard alongside AMD's Ryzen 7 1700X CPU. Here we will be using Corsair's Vengeance LED 3200MHz DDR4 memory on this test bed and use the same timings of 16-18-18-36 on ASUS' AGESA 1.0.0.6 Beta BIOS releases (BIOS version 9945).  

In this test, we will be using our Ryzen 7 1700X with a 4GHz overclock, so expect even larger performance gains when using a lower clocked or stock CPU.

Pretty decent gains just from a CPU. Wonder how the 4 core and 6 core Ryzen stuff fairsQuote

I'm rerunning the tests with the CPU at stock to see how the performance gap changes, will post the results later.Quote

Is there anyway to shut off cores in the BIOS to simulate Ryzen 5?Quote

There are options to do that, but they are very temperamental and time-consuming to get working right. Not enough time to get it done during Computex.Quote
