Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X TRI-X OC Testing:
BioShock Infinite, much like the first two installments of the franchise, is a first-person shooter known for its strong story and atmosphere. This third installment of the franchise no longer takes place in the underwater world of Rapture, but in the could city of Columbia. Utilizing many of the gameplay characteristics of the original games, BioShock Infinite has garnered critical acclaim. Taking the player through a maze of outdoor and indoor scenarios, the action is not constrained by territory. Developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K Games, this iteration uses the Unreal 3 game engine.
- DirectX 11
- Global settings = Ultra
In BioShock Infinite you get over 100FPS at 1920x1080 and close to 40FPS at 5760x1080, putting the performance curve ahead of the GTX 770 in each resolution. The FCAT results show tight frame time variances that indicate smooth game play through the test run. Across the test field there are a few frame time spikes that seem game-related; not a card issue.
