BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter video game and the third installment in the BioShock series. Previously known as "Project Icarus", it is being developed by Irrational Games and was released worldwide on the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 platforms on March 26, 2013. BioShock Infinite is not part of the storyline of previous BioShock games but features similar gameplay concepts and themes.

Checking out BioShock Infinite, you can again see in this case the NVIDIA offerings come out ahead. We can't stress the overclock on both NVIDIA cards enough, though.

 

When it comes to comparing Quiet and Uber mode, though, you can see a bit of difference with an extra 10% performance being seen at the higher resolution. It's a pity we're still a few FPS shy of that 60 FPS number we're always on the hunt for.
