Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure that takes them to the depths of Arkham Asylum - Gotham's psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Gamers will move in the shadows, instigate fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City's most notorious villains who have taken over the asylum.

 

Using a wide range of Batman's gadgets and abilities, players will become the invisible predator and attempt to foil The Joker's demented scheme.
Batman: Arkham Asylum features an original story penned exclusively for the game by famous Batman author and five-time Emmy award winner Paul Dini, whose credits include Lost season one and Batman: The Animated Series.

 

Note: With support for PhysX NVIDIA based cards will be tested with the technology on and off, ATI cards will be tested with the technology off due to it not being supported on their cards.

To date we haven't been able to get an average of over 30 FPS under Batman AA with High PhysX on. Thanks to the power of the Sapphire HD 5970 TOXIC and the extra PhysX grunt from the GTX 480, we smash that minimum today. You can clearly see at the highest resolution we've gone from 26 FPS to 60 FPS.

 

Compared to the single card setup without the GTX 480, performance is down, but you have to remember with PhysX on and at High the cards are working a lot harder than with PhysX off.
