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.
Here things return to normal -- the Executioner settles back into second place where we it expect it to be, only conceding the top spot to a system with more graphics cards (three versus two). Bioshock Inifinite doesn't give the Executioner much cause to break a sweat, and that's even true at a 4K resolution where the system averaged over 77 frames per second. Even at its worst, the Executioner still managed a minimum framerate of nearly 26fps at 4K. Well played (literally), Xotic PC.
