Bioshock Infinite

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

This is a much better showing for the new Fiji GPU, able to match performance with the GTX 980 Ti at 2560×1440 and Ultra image quality settings. Frame time variance and stutter levels were very good on the Fury X as well, marching along with the GeForce offerings.

At 4K we see the Fury X revert a little bit, somewhat unexpectedly. It moves to as much as 8% back from the GTX 980 Ti now but is actually running more than 40% faster than the R9 290X, a huge leap for AMD generationally.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury X 4GB, Average FPS Comparisons, Bioshock Infinite
  GTX 980 Ti 6GB R9 290X 4GB R9 295X2 8GB
2560×1440 -2% +39% -32%
3840×2160 -8% +40% -34%

The Fury X gets closer to the performance of the GTX 980 Ti here but isn't able to quite muster enough for a win. Comparing Fiji to Hawaii though, there is no doubt that the Fury X is offering a substantially better experience!
