Rise of the Tomb Raider Patch

I have yet to get into a good gaming session of Rise of the Tomb Raider, but I do know that Brent is working on an article right now to look at gaming performance. However it looks like all of his work just got pushed towards File 13 since this ROTR patch was just released and it does address a lot of graphics issues. While there are many more fixes listed than just these, these are the ones that stuck out to my eye.

New graphics option 'Specular Reflection Quality' to enhance resolution and reduce aliasing of specular reflections, at some performance cost.

New graphics option to disable film-grain independently from 'Screen Effects'.

Improved HBAO+ quality, including better occlusion for distant objects.

Improved NVIDIA SLI performance. (Steam only)

Fixed SLI glitches during water/snow effects. (Steam only)

Then I got to thinking, "What about Laura Croft...naked?" And I found this to share. Thank you ObsoleteGamer.com page with nothing on it, but bigger thanks to Google for the image cache. (Possibly NSFW, but SFW if no one is looking, you know what I mean.)
