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 Daddys". 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.

At 2560x1600 the HD 4890 is beaten only by the GTX 275. The HD 4890 does pull ahead of the GTX 275 when overclocked. Performance when compared to the HD 4870 cards shows that the cards do not compare favorably to the HD 4890. They are just slower across the scale.
