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
Even though the gaming experience in Bioshock Infinite is still a sore thumb for us here (with significant hitching on all cards), the GTX 960 is able to improve NVIDIA's stance at 1080p by besting the GTX 760 average frame rate by about 20%. The R9 285 and R9 280 from AMD's Radeon lineup are keeping up though, not letting the GTX 960 take a lead.
Results are again very similar at 2560×1440; the GTX 960 Strix from ASUS claims an 18% performance advantage over the GTX 760 and gets only a handful of frames higher average result than the R9 285 and R9 280.
