BioShock Infinite on Linux at 3840 x 2160 wasn't able to deliver past 60 FPS (or even 50 FPS) for the graphics cards tested on the latest proprietary drivers. The GeForce GTX 970 or better was needed for delivering above 30 FPS at 4K for this gaming. Meanwhile, the few tested Radeon GPUs all struggled much worse comparatively to their NVIDIA competition, which has been the case for the Catalyst Linux driver since the game launched.

Civilization V: Beyond Earth was even more gruesome to the fifteen tested graphics cards on Ubuntu Linux with none of them delivering above 30 FPS. Before getting too excited about the AMD Catalyst results, the game did deliver higher frame-rates but there was some rendering issues although the game itself may still be considered sufficient for AMD Linux gamers.
