BIOSHOCK Infinite Medium Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results: I didn’t see much of a difference between the processors while I had the image quality at the maximum so I dialed back the IQ to see where what would happen without all of the load on the GPU. Running BIOSHOCK on the medium IQ settings, the processors stacked them selves up pretty much the way I would expect. The Intel Core i7-4770K was the dominant force here with an average of 197.23 frames per second at 1920×1080 while the Intel Pentium G3258 averaged 136.07 frames per second. While the Pentium G3258 was overclocked it was able to pick up a couple fps and average 140.00 frames per second at 1920×1080.
