Gaming Benchmarks: Batman: Arkham City and Hitman: Absolution

To wrap up the game benchmarks, we ran Batman: Arkham City and Hitman: Absolution. Both games offer DX11 gaming modes and advanced graphics technologies, including tessellation.

Batman Arkham City
DX11 Gaming Performance
  Batman: Arkham City follows the aging Batman: Arkham Asylum and brings with it updated graphics. We turned on Nvidia PhysX and cranked the detail to Very High. 

When focusing on Full HD gaming, Lenovo's system climbed several spots. Don't read too much into the fact that it beat out a system with three Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards. Early on, Batman and AMD just refused to play nice together in CrossFireX configurations. That issue has since been addressed, but we no longer have these other systems in our possession to re-run the benchmarks.

Hitman: Absolution
DX11 Gaming Performance
  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. 

Lenovo struggled to pull playable framerates in the Hitman benchmark at 1920x1080, though we have the settings cranked up to Ultra with 8xAA. By dialing down these settings, the Erazer X700 would be able to play Hitman at Full HD without issue.
