Testing Configuration and Batman: Arkham Asylum
Galaxy GeForce GTX 260+ Razor Edition - Single slot performance - Graphics Cards  1

You can see in our GPU-Z shot with the Galaxy card installed that it is running at default reference clock speeds – which makes sense with Galaxy targeting a much smaller heatsink than standard.

The testing configuration for our Galaxy GTX 260+ Razor edition review as the same as our recent GPU reviews.  As such, you’ll see this new Galaxy card compared to the new Radeon HD 5770 from AMD and the somewhat cheaper GeForce GTS 250 graphics card.
  • Testing Configuration
  • ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution X58 + nForce 200
  • Intel Core i7-965 @ 3.33 GHz
  • 3 x 2GB Corsair DDR3-1333 MHz
  • Intel X25-M G2 160GB SSD
Now let’s dive into our performance benchmarks.


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.

Batman: Arkham Asylum Test Settings

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.

Right off the bat (oh man I can’t believe I just wrote that) the new Galaxy GTX 260+ Razor impresses us with a great showing in Batman: Arkham Asylum at any resolution besting the Radeon HD 5770 all three times.
