BioShock is a game published by 2K Boston/2K Australia, and designed by Ken Levine. The game is a PC and Xbox 360 title released on August 21, 2007 in North America. BioShock is a first-person shooter with role-playing game customization elements that was developed using the Unreal Engine 3.0 and is a DirectX 10 game title that is multithreaded.
Since 2K didn't include a benchmark script or utility in BIOSHOCK, I used FRAPS version 2.9.2 to capture the frame rates for 240 seconds at scenes that I personally selected from the game. If you don't know anything about Bioshock, let me set the scene for you: After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn and you get to kill them. Let's look at the benchmark results!
Benchmark Results: At 1024x768 with high quality settings set in the game, the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog XXX Edition video card performed 13.5% faster than what the other GeForce 8800 GT 512MB cards were able to do. It was even able to beat out both ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards in CrossFire!
Benchmark Results: At an in-game resolution of 1600x1200 and medium quality settings, the performance decreased from 101FPS to 62FPS, but still managed to lead the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB cards by nearly 14%. The original GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB card was found to be 14FPS slower than the new GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB!
