NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 Benchmarks
With the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum, the incredible benefits of PhysX are now universally recognized by gamers and reviewers worldwide. Batman: Arkham Asylum uses GPU accelerated rigid bodies to create a world where walls can be torn into hundreds of pieces, and where entire worlds can fall apart in front of the gamer’s eyes. With GPU based cloth, the countless piles of case profiles that litter the halls of Arkham are given new life as fully simulated dynamic objects. During combat, these sheets of paper fill the air, giving the FreeFlow combat system an extra sense of dynamism. Arkham’s smoky conduits and spooky graveyard also get a facelift with PhysX technology.
With 96 CUDA cores, the GeForce GT 240 provides a great gaming experience for Batman. The game can be enjoyed at 1680 x 1050 with PhysX effects enabled at 30 frames per second.
Dedicated PhysX Accelerator
The GeForce GT 240 is the perfect dedicated PhysX accelerator for existing GeForce owners who want to boost their PhysX performance. At under $99, the GeForce 240 GT strikes the right balance between price and performance for PhysX acceleration. Games like Batman Asylum run 57% faster with a dedicated GeForce GT 240.
