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
All four cards show signs of stutter and exceedingly long, random frame times in Bioshock Infinite, but the NVIDIA cards see that occurring much more frequently than either the R9 280X or R9 290X. At both 1920×1080 and 2560×1440 the R9 290X clearly takes the lead over both the GTX 780 and GTX Titan, both of which are adversely affected by the stutter and high frame times scattered throughout our test runs.
