Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration includes the base game and Season Pass featuring all-new content. Explore Croft Manor in the new “Blood Ties” story, then defend it against a zombie invasion in “Lara’s Nightmare”.

Showing the YouTube video from above, we are going to be looking at Rise of Tomb Raider video game graphics. Going to see if Rise of Tomb Raider is a CPU-bound video game or a GPU-bound video game. What does CPU and GPU-bound mean? Most video games are utilizing heavy on one spec of the hardware for your computer built. Most games will lean either to the CPU side or GPU side but there are rare cases that the video game can be both CPU and GPU Bound or in other term balanced. When you benchmark your video games, I recommend turning on vsync or making the video game run at locked 60 fps (frames per second) to see a better demonstration on what is being more utilize on hardware. I put in the graphs and information so that if you ever want to play this video game and not sure what to upgrade on your computer, you can see where if you have a bad CPU or bad GPU you can go ahead and upgrade that hardware.

Here are the recommend specs to minimum specs to run Rise of Tomb Raider:

 My PC Rig Minimum Specs Recommend Specs
CPU Intel Core i7-7700k @ 4.5 GHz Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD equivalent Intel Core i7-3770K or AMD equivalent
MEMORY 16 GB 6GB 8GB
GPU ASUS ROG NVIDIA GTX 1080(OC) NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB or AMD HD7770 2GB NVIDIA GTX 980Ti 2560x1440 or NVIDIA GTX 970 1920x1080

From the graph above, you can see a big hit on the GPU side for High to Very High settings. Rise of Tomb Raider is heavy focus on GPU-Bound title so I recommend if you have a low graphics card to update that then over the CPU side.
