We used the Bioshock Infinite demanding ‘Ultra’ setting and a 1920×1080 resolution to push today’s gaming hardware. Our data was recorded using a section of the game, not the built-in benchmark.
Metro: Last Light
We used a 1920×1080 resolution and the Metro: Last Light built-in benchmark set to ‘High’ quality to offer an intense challenge for the gaming hardware while also making playable frame rates a possibility.
We used a 1920×1080 resolution and the Tomb Raider built-in benchmark set to ‘Ultimate’ quality.
MSI’s X99S Gaming 7 offers solid gaming performance. The biggest frame rate difference between itself and the Asus X99 Deluxe is a minor 0.2 of a frame in Bioshock Infinite.
Graphics configurations and processor performance have greater effect on gaming frame rates than motherboards.
