Default Bioshock PC Demo DirectX 10 Performance

Bioshock hype has started up the past few weeks as the game videos started coming out quickly, and finally we were greeted with an Xbox 360 and now just a few hours ago a PC demo. While this game is not as anticipated as say Half Life 2 Episode 2, or Unreal Tournament 3, or Halo 3 don't let that fool you. This game had us hooked on the 360 demo, and counting the minutes until it hit for PC. Based on the Unreal 3 engine like Gears of War and Rainbow Six Vegas before it will surely 3 red light plenty of Xbox 360s keeping us busy at Tek Republik doing repairs, but at our shop the version of choice will be on the PC. Certainly we don't deploy games without testing them first, and for an Unreal 3 engine game, and the first of its sort to excite us on the PC we once again fired up the test systems and we have shot off benchmarks on an overclocked Athlon 64 X2 at 3.4GHz with all of the worthy Nvidia GeForce 8 series cards. We still don't have an AMD Radeon DX10 part, and frankly we don't feel like buying one. If AMD wants to send one our way we will gladly add those numbers. Here are the cards we have tested with so far below.

Same goes for AMD CPU?

Here's an interesting one for you. Following its introduction in Tokyo last week, the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ processor is making its official debut on these shores today. However, you won't see a review here at TR, nor presumably at most other places around the web. AMD has elected not to supply samples of this product to reviewers, and, well, you can probably guess why that might be. Why trigger a wave of reviews showing the competition to be faster?

I downloaded the demo, something I usually don't do, but I was a great fan of systemshock2. Bioshock being of the same people, I was looking forward to it.

Too bad a ATI x800 Pro isn't supported, that just a huge screwup on their part, as far as I am concerend. if it can run on recent low end, they might as well have done the little effort to make sure it works on older high ends.

it's not the low/high end part which matters, it's the DX support and feature set which is needed, something the X800 lacks
