BioShock Infinite's System Requirements Revealed, Will Run on Intel HD 3000
When a hotly anticipated PC game comes up, a few gamers may dread looking at the minimum hardware requirements for fear of their outdated rigs not making the cut. But BioShock Infinite, whilst being a DirectX 11 title, will end up being installed on a lot of PCs because of its relatively low barriers to entry. In fact, if you've got an Intel HD 3000 Integrated Graphics you'll be good to go - although if you've got an AMD Radeon HD 6950 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 you'll certainly benefit from the DX11 visual effects such as contact-hardening dynamic shadows, diffusion depth of field, high definition ambient occlusion and optimized antialiasing.
Graphical presets range from “Very Low” to “Ultra,” but further tweaking can also be had with the Custom configuration - anti-aliasing, texture detail, texture filtering, dynamic shadows, are just the few you can tinker with. The three-DVD setup might sound like a daunting installation but will be worth it, because according to Irrational, BioShock Infinite is going to feature full-resolution textures to justify why the PC is going to be the definitive version to get(at least on the eye-candy department).
