Batmat:Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum is a third-person action game developed by Rocksteady and is arguably the best comic book videogame of all time. Cast as the Dark Knight, you track down the Joker and bring him back to Arkham Asylum, Gotham's home for the criminally insane. However, the Joker escapes and takes over the asylum filled with hundreds of villains, which you must battle in this dark and creepy world. Gameplay consists of fist fighting, attacking from the shadows, and exploration. We tested the game using the built in benchmark at 2560x1600 with no anti-aliasing, PhysX off, and every graphical options set to their maximum values.

We found that Batman was completely playable with maximum settings using a 30 inch monitor. And it also proved to be a strong point Gigabyte's Super Overclock HD 5870. With an average FPS of 111, it was 11% faster than the reference card. Again, the Turbo X finished behind it by a few FPS and MSI's Lighting came in third.
