Let it not be said that GPU manufacturers don’t earn their bread and butter. An erstwhile user on NeoGAF has posted a set of pictures for Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider, using AMD’s TressFX technology as a benchmark.

The overall graphical options can be seen below in the first screenshot. This is on a system with 8 GB DDR3 RAM clocked at 1600 MHz with a 2600K at 4.6 GHz and a 2 GB GTX 670 – by no means a slouch in terms of graphical capability.


Now, check out what kind of performance is obtained with TressFX enabled.

A minimum 23.3 frame per second and maximum 39.6 frames per second. This makes for an average frame rate of 31.1 FPS.

Now, see what kind of performance is obtained with TressFX disabled.


A minimum FPS of 38.9 and maximum 60.3 FPS. This makes for an average of 50.5 frames per second – nearly double that of enabling TressFX. Insane. Just insane.

But the amount of detail obtained is indubitably worth it. Check out the Tomb Raider gameplay video below with TressFX enabled and see if you agree.
