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.

Wow, in our Batman testing, the performance gap between the GDDR3 and GDDR5 variant of the GT 240 cards is pretty big: 42% at 1920×1200!  What might be more telling though are the other cards in this comparison: both the HD 4850 and the 9800 GT are significantly faster than either of the new options from NVIDIA.
