Batman Arkham Knight Performance Review


Test System

Before jumping into doing some benchmarks, lets take a look at the test system. All testing was done with a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with all patches and no additional software running. All benchmarks are run five times with the results averaged. Each of the benchmarks will be run with pre-configured settings at 1920×1080, 25601440 and 4K resolutions.

We will be comparing the Sapphire Nitrio 390 and eVGA GTX 970 SC. Both AMD and NVIDIA updated their drivers to smooth out some issues with Batman Arkham Knight, you can get the drivers here:
