For anyone glancing at the results on this page it would seem like a clear win for AMD however the tables don’t tell the full story. Arkham City takes full advantage of NVIDIA PhysX to enhance image quality, including advanced cloth, paper and particle effects. These really do add to the realism and immersiveness of the game and the extra work required does drop performance. That said we can disable the technology if we wish and that increases the Palit framerates significantly. We would always keep the PhysX effects on though.

Here are examples of how the game looks at our tested settings.
