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.

Batman is another game that performs much better with NVIDIA hardware installed. Both models of the GTX 480 led the pack in our results. The Amp Edition recorded frame rates of 62 FPS minimum and 89 FPS on average. That's a 13% increase over the HD 5970 from XFX, and an impressive 41% lead over the 5870.
