Tomb Raider explores the intense origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor.

Showing the YouTube video from above, we are going to be looking at Tomb Raider 2013 Edition on Steam video game graphics. Going to see if 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.

Chart for PC specifications and hardware to run Tomb Raider on the PC – Showing off with my own PC rig along with the Minimum Specs to Recommend Specs.

 My PC Rig Minimum Specs Recommend Specs
CPU Intel Core i7-7700k @ 4.5 GHz AMD Athlon64 X2 2.1 Ghz (4050+) | Intel Core2 Duo 1.86 Ghz (E6300) AMD Phenom II X4 955 | Intel Core i5-750
GPU ASUS ROG NVIDIA GTX 1080(OC) DirectX 9 graphics card with 512Mb RAM |AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT, nVidia 8600 DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB RAM | AMD Radeon HD 5870, nVidia GTX 480
Tomb Raider PC CPU And GPU

From the graph above, you can see a big hit within the medium settings that its staying very high on the GPU – GPU is taking a hit due to low ram usage and boosting up the clocking/GHz its utilizing. 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.
