Bioshock Infinite – Single GPU

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

 

Bioshock Infinite continues to stutter and hitch unlike any game I have ever tested, and even though the GTX 980 is producing the best average frame rates (19% faster than the R9 290X) I would really like to see either side fix thes kind of results. Unlikely, based on the age of the game though.

 

 

The same results are seen with our GTX 970 testing, though with a further average frame rate advantage for NVIDIA (about 20% faster than the R9 290).
