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
At 1080p in Bioshock Infinite, the MSI R9 280 finds itself 11% slower (99 FPS vs 110 FPS) than the R9 280X though quite a bit faster than the R9 270X and the GTX 760 from NVIDIA (22%).
At 2560×1440 though that gap actually WIDENS in favor of the R9 280 as it produces and average frame rate that is 24% faster than the GTX 760 and R9 270X but is only 11% slower than the R9 280X. Being able to push just over 60 FPS on average at this resolution at Ultra quality settings is a great feat for a $229 graphics card.
