Intel Core i7-5775C With Iris Pro Graphics Review: Broadwell For Desktops
GPU Testing: Bioshock, Cinebench
BioShock Infinite is 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. We tested the game at various resolutions with its DX11 code path with DOF effects enabled.
The Core i7-5775C's Iris Pro 6200 series graphics engine is clearly more powerful than any of the other platforms we tested. It was even able to break the 30FPS mark in this game at 1080P.
