NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M Mobility Performance Testing
Bioshock Infinite (DirectX 11)
Bioshock Infinite is a new addition to our testing rounds and we have some interesting results. The average frame rate of the GTX 780M is 16% faster than that of the HD 7970M at these settings but the frame time graphs deserve more discussion. Both AMD and NVIDIA are showing some “hitches” in frame times, large spikes up that indicate a stutter in the game play. In our testing they were more frequent on the NVIDIA 780M platform and a little more dramatic as well. Keeping mind that we are doing manual runs of the games for these results, 3 for each, the differences could be simple run-to-run variances but it does appear the 780M + 320.21 driver has a bit more issue with stutters than the HD 7970M + 13.6 Beta driver.
