Bioshock Infinite Performance

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.

Bioshock Infinite shows how unpredictable multi-GPU setups can be. Although the Rush posted mediocre scores at the two lower resolutions, it blasted away the field at 4K by a long shot.
