And as a high graphic intensive game, this sci-fi First Person Shooter game will definitely require much heavier supports, in terms of hardware and most importantly GPU or graphic card.

The good thing about this game is, despite its high standard requirements, Bioshock Infinite surprisingly is still playable for those gamers that own some pretty good quality PCs or laptops.

This is proved by Irrational Games that decides to enable the features to control each of element inside the game (like polygons, graphics quality, etc) in order to allow gamers’ average laptops to meet the standard in Bioshock Infinite system requirements, so they are still eligible to play this amazing game smoothly without any lag on their laptops at compromised low settings.
