Irrational Games has released the minimum and recommended system requirements for BioShock Infinite. You'll need at least 20GB of hard drive space in order to run the PC version of the shooter.
To help PC gamers tweak the game's settings for maximum performance, Irrational is also releasing a benchmark tool. This tool allows you to perform fly-throughs of scenes from Infinite. You'll be able to test various options such as graphics quality and resolution during the fly-throughs.
"Along the way the benchmark mode captures minimum, maximum, and average framerate over 500 millisecond intervals, along with the name of the scene being captured, technical director Christopher Kline told PC Gamer. "When the benchmark ends, it writes out a small spreadsheet in .csv format that you can analyze or graph in any way you want. The spreadsheet also contains the value of all relevant settings that were in effect at the time of the benchmark, so people can compare apples to apples."
While the game doesn't require DirectX11, those of you with DX11-capable video cards will be able to enjoy enhanced visuals. For example, the game utilizes DirectX11's Shader Model 5 to produce more realistic shadows.
The full system requirements are below. Infinite will hit the PC as well as consoles in March.
