Shadow of the Tomb Raider - With Ray Tracing and DLSS Testing

Nvidia RTX 3080 Founders Edition Review

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Lara has been a firm fixture in our benchmark suite for as long as we can remember. Shadow might have had a mixed response as it took Miss Croft out of both her and the players comfort zones – particularly if the player hadn’t tried Rise of the Tomb Raider, but there is no denying the graphical splendour available from the Foundation engine.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider brings Ray Tracing and DLSS to compatible hardware, and we’re testing in every possible combination. The first graph is all resolutions in 'plain' (DLSS Off) mode. The second graph with Ray Tracing on, and the third graph with Ray Tracing and DLSS on and off to demonstrate any performance changes.

NB - Like Metro Exodus, the results in Shadow of the Tomb Raider will benefit from a game patch and a less pre-launch driver. At stock it's fine, but the overclocked results are a little curious. Like Metro Exodus, Shadow of the Tomb Raider's DLSS results at 1080p and 1440p are lacklustre, but this is due to this game's lack of an early, Pre-DLSS 2.0 implementation of Deep Learning Super Sampling.

A question.

What sort of overclock does the 2080Ti you are using have?

Edit. Sorry I see it's not overclocked.Quote

I would think its stock. Would expect it to be labelled OC if anything. Those are some impressive numbers. Lets hope I maintain my good deal 3090 now Quote

In shadow of tomb raider 4k max ray tracing no dlss, why does 3080 oc have double the framerate of 3080 non oc? Typo?Quote

It's about what I expected, Not very impressive to be honest considering the 2 year gap since the last big Nvidia launch.Quote
