MSI R7970 Lightning Enthusiast Overclocked Graphics Card Review

Batman Arkham City - DirectX 11


Arkham City was tested at 1920x1080/5760x1080 with FXAA, 16xAF and all other settings at their maximum. The Nvidia card had PhysX on high, AMD PhysX was off.

On the last page we saw a situation where the 7970 was able to open up a significant gap over the GTX 580 making it the ideal card to buy for Total War players. When looking at the Batman performance we see some good results for the AMD card again, offering us playable framerates at 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 with maximum detail... of course that doesn't include PhysX which is something unique to NVIDIA cards and a feature which greatly enhances the visual experience on those models... an interesting choice for consumers, higher image quality or faster framerates...

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