DirectX 11 - Batman Arkham Knight
Batman: Arkham Knight was developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in 2015. Based on the DC Comics superhero Batman, it is the successor to the 2013 video game Batman: Arkham Origins, and the fourth main installment in the Batman: Arkham series.
The game is presented from a third-person perspective, with a primary focus on Batman’s melee combat, stealth abilities, detective skills, and gadgets. Arkham Knight also introduces the Batmobile as a playable vehicle, which is used for transportation, puzzle solving and combat. The game expands Batman’s arsenal of gadgets and combat attacks and offers a more open world structure, allowing the player to complete side missions away from the primary storyline.
At 1080p, all of our cards perform well with NVIDIA Gameworks disabled (which cannot be used on AMD hardware and therefore has been disabled for a fair test and comparison). The Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 has a commanding lead but again, becomes CPU-bound and had plenty of power to deliver more. Considering the NVIDIA optimisation and close collaboration, the Radeon R9 290 holds very well against the GeForce GTX 970 and manages to just edge it out. Let’s check what happens at 1440p
Yet again, Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 barely flinches (like firing 9mm rounds at The Terminator). While the other cards lose around 1/3rd of their average framerate, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 only reduces down by around 15%. This card absolutely eats 1440p resolutions for breakfast and is the perfect accompaniment for a 144hz 2560×1440 monitor. Again, the Radeon R9 290 surprisingly manages to hold its own in this NVIDIA-optimised title against the GeForce GTX 970 with the Radeon R9 280X not far behind.
