Batman: Arkham Asylum (DirectX 10)



One of the best received gaming titles on both console and PC for 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum is an impressive game both visually and in terms of design.

One interesting note: Batman (personally) doesn’t allow setting AA levels in-game for AMD graphics card but DOES for NVIDIA GPUs.  We instead enabled AA in the AMD Catalyst Control Panel where noted.

Performance is scaling pretty impressively on Batman: Arkham Asylum – even though we are tripling our pixel count, the game is able to stay right at about 30 FPS on the minimum and nearly at 40 FPS on the average.  This type of game is very playable at those speeds with just a single HD 5870.

Now we have our opinions and a demonstration of Batman: Arkham Asylum using AMD Eyefinity technology.
