[H]ard|OCP recently revisited a few older games which proved more than a match for the GPUs of that time, to see if the current models can manage 1440p and 4k with all the graphical bells and whistles cranked up to 11.  Metro 2033 and Last Light featured PhysX, tessellation and depth of field options which the GPUs of 2010-13 had trouble with, Tomb Raider sported nicer hair than a bearded Geralt and Crysis 3 offers as much of a challenge as its siblings.  Can you now play these games at 4k, with full graphics settings when armed with a GTX 1080 Ti or Vega 64?  Check out the full review to see.

"It is time once again to play some older PC games on the latest GPUs of today using the latest drivers. We pull from three 5-year-old games and one 8-year-old game today and see if we can maximize the IQ settings in those games at 1440p and 4K. The theme of the day: Older games that still hold up today in terms of IQ."
