The Best $500 NVIDIA PhysX Setup - Benchmarks - Batman Arkham Asylum

Batman Arkham Asylum

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1
Timedemo or Level Used: Built-in Test

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.

The bad news is that with a dedicated PhysX card we're still not above that 30 FPS minimum we want. What we really need to look at here, though, is that the GTX 470 with a dedicated PhysX card performance is better, which is indeed very interesting.
