    What a great AAA game. But I played it years ago on Windows. Too bad.

        It doesn't really change benchmark scores, not worth it. It's mainly for the problem areas where it dips in-game. You don't seem them in the benchmark.

          In fact it changes scores. I've done a few benchmarks yesterday (right before the patch):
          Quality set to normal: min: 29 / max: 71 / avg: 56 fps

          Now after the patch it is:
          Quality set to normal: min: 48 / max: 88 / avg: 73 fps

          Windows benchmark:
          Quality set to normal: min: 85 / max: 120 / avg: 106 fps

          Wine-staging 1.9.10 with gallium-nine patch:
          Quality set to normal: min: 36 / max: 76 / avg: 63 fps

          All benchmarks were done in the res: 1920x1080

          Informations from the glxinfo (gpu: amd HD 7850)
          OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.43.0, LLVM 3.9.0)
          OpenGL core profile version string: 4.2 (Core Profile) Mesa 11.3.0-devel (git-9690ab0)
          Also i have the amd 860k cpu so maybe that is the reason of increased overal score.

            Thanks a lot for the feedback. That'll help me convince the people around me that Linux is a viable gaming platform (we give laptops that come installed with Linux to high schoolers where I live).

              Well it might be a viable.
              I have an old gtx 570 and it performs a lot better than the amd gpu, Bioshock Infinite, Shadow of Mordor and Civ 5 everything runs great with GTX.
              On the other hand with amd your able to use wine with gallium-nine patch and that thing sometimes is quite amazing.
              Also i was amazed that a native linux Shadow of Mordor runs smoothly with the open radeon driver.
              Unfortunetly X3 Terran Conflict / Albion Prelude has only 5 fps no matter what and the same issue is with the Bioshock.

              As to the laptops i have also one with gtx 960m. It performs quite well under the linux

                Thanks again. I'll just say that my HD3000 powered laptop runs Civ V okay-ish. As for Tomb Raider... I just wanted to see whether or not I could launch the game. That is not my gaming rig, by the way (I got an HD7950 in my gaming PC).

                  The fact it's now faster than gallium-nine is impressive to me. A lot of ports don't even manage that. I will have to look at this again as I never really sat down and played it.

                    Performance of the game is indeed quite nice. The only thing that annoys me are the stutters and freezes I get every time that Lara enters another area/region.
