Batman: Arkham City uses the Unreal Engine 3 game engine with PhysX. For benchmark testing of Batman: Arkham City we disabled PhysX to keep it fair and ran the game in DirectX 11 mode with 8x MSAA enabled and all the image quality features cranked up. You can see all of the exact settings in the screen captures above.

Benchmark Results: We ran Batman Arkham City at 1920×1080 and found that the AMD Radeon HD 7690M averaged 14 FPS and the AMD Radeon HD 8790M averaged 23 FPS.  This means we are seeing a 9 FPS or roughly a 64% performance jump between the two cards. The cards differ in core architecture and clock speeds, so a number of factors are at play to get this this nice performance improvement! Mainstream notebooks with discrete graphics are going to be able to run many hot gaming titles in 2013 without any issues!
