Bioshock Infinite

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 original GeForce GTX 780 was already faster than the Radeon R9 290X in Bioshock Infinite; the GeForce GTX 780 Ti simply extends that lead, and puts the card at the top of the heap.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti was also far more consistent outputting frames to the screen than any of the Radeons. Whereas the Radeon R9 290X exhibited significant variations in the middle of the run, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti did not.
