Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City is a sequel to 2009’s Game of the Year-winning Batman: Arkham Asylum. This recently released sequel, however, lives up to and even surpasses the original in many ways. The story takes place 18 months after the original game. Quincy Sharp, the onetime administrator of Arkham Asylum, has become mayor and convinced Gotham to create "Arkham City" by walling off the worst, most crime-ridden areas of the city and turning the area into a giant open-air prison. The game has DirectX 9 and 11 rendering paths, with support for tessellation, multi-view soft shadows, and ambient occlusion. We tested in DX11 mode at various resolutions with all in-game graphical options set to their maximum values.

We had another fairly tight grouping in the Batman: Arkham City benchmark, and once again the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super OverClock comes out on top at the lower resolution. With the resolution cranked up to 2560x1600 though, the ASUS Matrix Radeon HD 7970 Platinum takes the pole position.
