Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

BioShock Infinite

Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Effects Quality: Ultra metrics for this test profile configuration based on 452 public results since 18 March 2015 with the latest data as of 17 October 2023.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
