XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation 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, the XFX R9 290X is only out-performed by the GTX 780 Ti and PowerColor R9 290X at 1920x1080, but is faster than the R9 290X at 5760x1080. The FCAT results show very small frame time variances throughout both resolutions, with a few outliers that seem to be game-driven more so than card-driven, with all the cards showing the same anomaly.
