Bioshock Infinite – R9 270X, R7 260X
Bioshock Infinite (DirectX 11)
BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter like you’ve never seen. Just ask the judges from E3 2011, where the Irrational Games title won over 85 editorial awards, including the Game Critics Awards’ Best of Show. Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood. During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond — one that lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, and immersing players in a story that is not only steeped in profound thrills and surprises, but also invests its characters with what Game Informer called “An amazing experience from beginning to end."
Our Settings for Bioshock Infinite
The R9 270X is once again clearly faster than the GTX 660 that shares the $199 price point and is very competitive with the GTX 760 that will sell for $50 more. We also see that the Radeon card produces animation is much smoother and does exhibit the stutters that the GeForce cards do.
While the performance of the GTX 650 Ti Boost is basically matching that of the R7 260X, the gameplay is quite a bit smoother on the Radeon solution.
