Batman Arkham City is one of the few games available which really separates the NVIDIA and AMD cards. On the AMD side we are able to play on three screens (e.g. 5760×1080) but single NVIDIA cards are limited to one… on the GeForce we can enhance the image quality of the game with PhysX which AMD don’t support. NVIDIAs stereoscopic 3D also works better with this game.

So looking at framerates, because of the added work on the GTX cards they score lower but those looking for a smooth gaming experience will be happy with the AMD solution, even if it does lack that extra IQ.

Here is an example of how the game looks at our tested settings.
