CyberPowerPC Zeus Mini-I 780 SFF Gaming PC Review

Gaming Benchmarks: Batman: Arkham City and Hitman: Absolution

Few games do dark and moody like the Batman series. We ran both Batman: Arkham City and Hitman: Absolution with graphics settings at or near the max, including tessellation.

Batman: Arkham City is the second in the trio of Batman: Arkham games. Released in 2011, it continued the dark narrative themes created by the 2009 Batman: Arkham Asylum game and added new gameplay mechanics, as we as a bigger environment. A newer title, Batman: Arkham Origins was launched in late October. For this test, we turned on Nvidia PhysX and cranked the detail to Very High.

In Batman: Arkham City,the Zeus Mini hung right with the AVADirect, Digital Storm VIRTUE, and iBuypower Chimera rigs, although the group scored below the trio of lead systems.

Hitman: Absolution

Our final game benchmark of the review is of Hitman, the blockbuster series that follows an assassin as he finds himself go from hunter to prey. The benchmark routine makes use of Hitman: Absolution's support for Global Illumination, which provides realistic lighting, but also hammers on NVIDIA-based graphics cards. The benchmark shows a throng of people watching fireworks in crowded city square.

In our final gaming benchmark, the Zeus Mini again slipped down the totem pole a bit, finishing just ahead of the AVADirect Mini and Digital Storm VIRTUE but well behind the rest of the field.
