The same cannot be said for BioShock. Using Catalyst 13.8 beta in Eyefinity mode, disabling frame pacing, the Radeon HD 7990 and GeForce GTX 690 start off evenly, earning equal favor. Shifting to a single display at 2560x1600, AMD actually loses some ground, with more votes going to Nvidia.
We can’t draw an exact comparison to Don’s findings, since he used the built-in benchmark sequence, while our participants each started a new game to play through some of the action themselves. What he did see, however, was that the new driver didn’t do much to change the quantifiable benchmark results. The comments we did see on the survey indicated that Nvidia’s card felt smoother, though.
