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.

BioShock Infinite looks good at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050 with playable numbers at both resolutions. Like the R9 290X 4GB, though, we struggle to hit the 60 FPS average we want at 2560 x 1600. This is something we can see both the heavily overclocked GTX 780 3GB and GTX TITAN 6GB are able to do.
