A new Rise of the Tomb Raider Patch adds new graphical options and fixes


The newest Rise of the Tomb Raider Patch has adds new graphical options and implemented several fixes for the game, many of which are Nvidia specific. 

Some of the fixes are simple startup fixes for the Steam version while others implement better HBAO+ quality and improve Nvidia SLI performance and several SLI related glitches. 


     We have just released the first PC patch for Rise of the Tomb Raider, build 1.0.610.1. This patch focusses on critical issues users ran into immediately following release, as well as minor updates based on user feedback which we could get in quickly. 

This patch will be applied by Steam or Windows automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client or manually look for updates in the Windows Store.


While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on the old version we have made a Beta available on Steam, Build 604.2, that can be used to switch back to the previous version.

We will keep monitoring for feedback and will release further patches as it seems required. We always welcome your feedback!

I must say, RotTR has performed well for me from release. Look forward to downloading the patch and to see if there is any real difference. The only issue I have ever encountered in the game is the map issue, where the map would highlight the wrong area until it is moved around a little.Quote

This game definitely needs some more work tbh. For some reason if I enable Very High settings on Crossfire it just crashes all the time. When it doesn't crash though the FPS are more than acceptable (40-60) so it's a shame this happens.

I was thinking it could be down to Vram use but AMD have said it's not. Lower it down to high? it zips along fine. Very strange, and I hope they can fix it sooner rather than later Quote

Game is once again running buttery smooth 99% of the times.

FPS has been improved now I am getting mostly over 50fps with it hitting 60fps more consistently.

Thats my GPU Max and Avg usage whilst playing now, never bothered checking it before but I thought I would with it, supposedly using SLI better and to be honest from my experience it is, even with the game cranked to the max.

I did forget to click the sensors for the 2nd gpu though for the avg



Tried it this morning and the game is a stuttery mess, with the frame rate now sitting at an average of 15FPS.

I think I will continue playing once more patches are released and it's fixed to the point the frame rates are stable.Quote
