The game begins with a small camp at Siberia, where Lara is gazing at the huge mountains that await them. Jonah tells her that the others won't be accompanying them anymore except him. The climb soon becomes challenging, with Lara nearly falling down to her death. As Lara reaches the top, she sees the ruins of Kitezh from afar, but the storm strikes the mountain and separates the two. This particular test has the following enabled:

Our scores are average frame rates so you need to keep a margin in mind for lower FPS at all times. As such, we say 40 FPS in your preferred monitor resolution for this game should be your minimum, while 60 FPS (frames per second) can be considered optimal. We opted for the GeForce GTX 1080 as it really requires a fast processor to be able to keep up with that raw horsepower.
Game mode for 2950X, yay or nay?
So, you need to decide whether or not the game mode for you is something viable to use. For the 2990WX it makes heaps of sense. However, with the 2950X running four threads in that 4.4 GHz range, the results most definitely will vary. BTW the numbers are a bit all over the place as ever since, last year, games have received patches, some better and others worse.
