BioShock Infinite Linux Gaming Benchmarks

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 18 March 2015 at 08:00 PM EDT. 55 Comments
Yesterday BioShock Infinite was finally released for Linux as the latest high-quality game being ported over from Windows. Judging from the comments, this is going to be one of the more popular Linux games for the time being. The good news is I've adapted the game for serving as our latest Linux gaming benchmark.

Via our open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking platform in conjunction with the cloud platform and Phoromatic automated test harness, there's now BioShock Infinite Linux benchmarking support throughout... Assuming you have Steam installed on Linux and own rights to the game, it's simple a matter of running phoronix-test-suite benchmark bioshock-infinite -- thanks to the gaming having the necessary built-in benchmarking support that we're able to interface with (here's the raw test profile contents for those curious what the test interface looks like).

With now having the bioshock-infinite test profile I've started a large AMD + NVIDIA Linux graphics comparison with this newly-ported Linux game. Expect the results of this mass comparison using the binary Linux graphics drivers to come out in the days ahead.

Any feedback is welcome by commenting on this article. If you wish to see more BioShock Infinite Linux benchmarks or for the upcoming article to be expanded and made more great, consider providing a PayPal tip or subscribing to Phoronix Premium as it will directly affect how much BioShock Infinite Linux testing is done and how much time is invested in the article. Thanks for your support to make this possible!

P.S. I'm also looking at delivering some fresh Metro 2033/LL Redux tests and other updated Linux game benchmark results too from the newest AMD/NVIDIA drivers pending interest and support level too. If you can't contribute financially, you can at least follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
