ASUS GeForce GTX 680 Maximum Overclock Graphics Card Review

Batman Arkham City – DirectX 11

Arkham City was tested at 1920×1080/5760×1080 with FXAA, 16xAF and all other settings at their maximum. The NVIDIA card had PhysX on high, AMD PhysX was off.

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 brings the GTX 680 up towards the reference 7970 scores in this game. Adding an overclock to the ASUS card gives us completely smooth "maximum IQ" framerates at 1920×1080 which is good to see.

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