Batman: Arkham Origins & BioShock Infinite

Arkham Origins is the latest in the popular Arkham series and follows Batman in a prequel as he tackles the early villains of his career. The game has a built-in benchmark that tests each GPU through a sequence of specific tests -- the first tests in the series emphasize tessellation performance, for example, while later tests focus on particle effects and fire/smoke rendering.

While Batman: Arkham Origins tends to run faster on NV hardware if MSAA isn't used, no tilt obscures how the GTX 980M obliterates the R9 M290X. The top score and bottom score on the graph are run at identical detail settings, and the GTX 980M is very nearly 3x faster than the AMD Radeon card in this game.

Bioshock Infinite was clear game-of-the-year material. The floating city of Columbia is one of the most evocative, intense, and gorgeous environments we've ever seen in a PC game -- but how much you like it may depend on what sort of visual wizardry you prefer. Bioshock Infinite is built on Unreal Engine 3, and while it pushes that framework's capabilities into the stratosphere, there's a clear difference between Bioshock Infinite and, say, Crysis 3. Bioshock Infinite emphasizes light, color and motion, and while the characters look more exaggerated and cartoon-like than some other games, they still look great.



BioShock Infinite's benchmark is another meteoric win for the GTX 980M. Again, the GTX 980M is nearly 2x the speed of the AMD Radeon R9 M290X, but it's 1.41x faster than the GTX 880M in the MSI GT60 Dominator Pro as well. This is a laptop built for people who have previously been convinced that mobile gaming required a fundamentally compromised gaming experience.
