NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review: A Cheaper Titan X Arrives

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.

GeForce GTX 980 Ti Frame Time Data

This game didn't seem to behave properly at 1440p with the GeForces (it seemed like V-Sync wasn't disabled, even though it was), but performance scaled as expected when we increased the game's resolution to 3840x2160. Once again, we see the Titan X leading the pack of single-GPU powered cards, followed by the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with the Radeon R9 295X2 leading the pack.
