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 2560 x 1600, 8x AA, and very high image settings. For ATI models, we used Catalyst Control Center to apply 8x anti-aliasing. PhsX was disabled for all cards.

With image quality settings cranked up in Batman: Arkham Asylum, the Hydro Copper FTW GTX 480 videocard flexed its muscles and pulled off another win over the HD 5970. With an average frame rate of 90 FPS, it performed 12% faster than ATI's dual-GPU graphics card.
