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. 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.

The GeForce GTX 670 cards finish right on par with the GeForce GTX 680 in the Batman Arkham City benchmark. The higher memory frequencies of the overclocked GeForce GTX 670 cards allow it to match the GeForce GTX 680 in this game.

A pair of GeForce GTX 670 cards running in SLI mode comes in just behind the GeForce GTX 690--trailing by only 1 FPS at both resolutions.
