Batman: Arkham Origins
Batman: Arkham Origins was recently released in October 2013. It utilizes the Unreal Engine 3, and is an action-adventure game where the player takes on the role of Batman. While it is technically the third game in the series, it is actually a prequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
Batman has a hidden benchmark tool that runs several pre-configured scenes against the video options. This is a great feature to be included and makes it an easy way to make a good comparison across multiple video cards. The resolution was set to 1920×1080, Anti-Aliasing was set to FXAA High and DirectX 11 Enhanced features were enabled as all the cards are DirectX 11 compatible.
If Batman Arkham Origins is one of your favorite games, you’ll see a huge boost in performance with the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290. The Average FPS in the integrated benchmark skyrocketed to 172FPS during the 1080p test.
Losing about 50% in performance, the Sapphire R9 290 still received an average of 82FPS in Eyefinity mode, which took the base resolution from 1920×1080 to 5760×1080.
Benchmark Results: In a single 1080p monitor configuration or Eyefinity mode at 5760×1080, the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290 received high scores and will be very playable at any graphic settings.
