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 with all in-game graphical options set to their maximum values, at various resolutions.

Although the actual framerate scores are difference, the performance trend in Batman: Arkham City mirrors many of our other tests. The new GeForce GTX 660 cards once again outpace the Radeon HD 7870, but hey can't quite catch the stock Radeon HD 7950, let alone the faster / sort-of-newer Radeon HD 7950 w/ Boost.
