Batman: Arkham Origins is an action-adventure video game developed by Warner Bros. Games Montréal. Based on the DC Comics superhero Batman, it follows the 2011 video game Batman: Arkham City and is the third main installment in the Batman: Arkham series. It was released worldwide on October 25, 2013.
For testing we used DirectX11 Enhanced, FXAA High Anti-Aliasing and with all the bells and whistles turned on. It should be noted that V-Sync was turned off and that NVIDIA’s PhysX software engine was also disabled to ensure both the AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards were rendering the same objects. We manually ran FRAPS on the single player game instead of using the built-in benchmark to be as real world as we possibly could. We ran FRAPS in the Bat Cave, which was one of the only locations that we could easily run FRAPS for a couple minutes and get it somewhat repeatable.
The CPU usage for Batman: Arkham Origins was surprising low with just 10% of the Intel Core i7-4960X being used by this particular game title. You can see that the bulk of the work is being done by one CPU core.
Benchmark Results: The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti GHz Edition 3GB video card had the highest core clock speeds of the three GeForce GTX 780 Ti cards and therefore had the best gaming performance of the three cards. The MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming and EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked card with ACX Cooling were very similar when it came to gaming performance as just 13MHz separated the cards factory rated boost clock speed. All of the GeForce GTX 780 Ti cards were easily able to outperform the overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 card that we used for reference.
Benchmark Results: When you look at performance over time all of the cards were able to run above 40FPS and that is pretty good for this Ultra HD (3840×2160) test setup.
