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.

While the HD 5850 does trail behind the GTX 470 at all resolutions, at the highest one which is where we see the GTX 470 begin to struggle, the HD 5850 Turbo with its extra MHz on offer helps bring up the minimum and give the average a nice bump making it overall the fastest card.

 

Of course, the ATI offerings don't support PhysX, but since the GTX 470 is compared in the article it's relevant to offer the results it receives when PhysX is on.
