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."

Sapphire Tri-X R9 Fury 4GB, Average FPS Comparisons, Bioshock Infinite
  NVIDIA GTX 980 AMD Fury X AMD R9 290X

3840×2160 +9% -15% +22%

CrossFire Results

Our CrossFire results are presented only to give you an idea of R9 Fury scaling capability as we didn't have a chance to test a pair of GTX 980 cards in SLI for comparison yet.

Scaling at 2560×1440 is mediocre at best with some wildly swinging frame rates and increased frame time variance that might affect your gaming experience.

However, at 4K, most of the goes away and we find that the R9 Fury card scales nearly perfectly from ~60 FPS to ~120 FPS!
