The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Review: Featuring EVGAby Ryan Smith on September 26, 2014 10:00 AM EST
Bioshock Infinite is Irrational Games’ latest entry in the Bioshock franchise. Though it’s based on Unreal Engine 3 – making it our obligatory UE3 game – Irrational had added a number of effects that make the game rather GPU-intensive on its highest settings. As an added bonus it includes a built-in benchmark composed of several scenes, a rarity for UE3 engine games, so we can easily get a good representation of what Bioshock’s performance is like.
Bioshock Infinite immediately turns the tables on AMD, and outside of a near-tie at 4K the GTX 970 takes a significant lead here. At both 1440p and 1080p the GTX 970 clears the R9 290XU by 21%, and even against the GTX 780 it enjoys quite a lead.
