Testing:

BioShock is one of the creepier games you can play. The building of a perfect Utopian society undersea gone horribly wrong. Its inhabitants driven mad with the introduction of tonics and genetic modifications. Now Rapture is just a shadow of its former glory, with little girls looting the dead of what little they have left while being shadowed by guardians known as "Big Daddies". It is a demanding game that will make your hardware scream for mercy. This First Person Shooter allows for an infinite number of weapons and modifications to provide a unique experience each time it is played. The environment, as well as the story line, will wrap you up for hours on end.

Higher Scores = Better Performance

 

At 1920x1200, the HD 4850x2 CrossFireX setup delivers an identical average FPS as the HD 4870x2 CrossFireX combo; it does trail off once you move to 2560x1600. Both manufacturers' video card systems scale well in this game. The GTX 295 shows a 26 FPS improvement at 1920x1200 that blossoms to almost 100FPS at 2560x1600. The scaling by the HD 4870x2 is a little better at 1920x1200, with an increase of 67 FPS, and a 74 FPS increase at the maximum resolution.
