Batman: Arkham City uses the Unreal Engine 3 game engine with PhysX. For benchmark testing of Batman: Arkham City we ran the game in DirectX 11 mode with 8x MSAA enabled and all the image quality features cranked up. You can see our settings in the screen capture above. Hardware physics was enabled.
Benchmark Results: Clearly hardware physics is brutal on even these high end cards. While not exact comparable, the trio of GeForce 660 Ti runs neck and neck against the GTX 670, falling behind by only 1 fps at 2560×1600.
