Batman: Arkham City Benchmarks

Following the surprising success of "Arkham Asylum", British Rocksteady Studios published their second Batman Software in 2011. Learn about the system requirements of the excellent "Arkham City".

Our test routine

Arkham City conveniently has an integrated benchmark under the options of the game. It takes about one minute and displays average, minimum and maximum frame rate.

Analysis of the Benchmarks

Despite the old Unreal-Engine 3 the action title looks extremely good with maximum details, active DirectX 11 and manifold antialiasing. However, it can only be played with a true high-end graphics card. Even for high details, a moderate resolution of 1366 x 768 a high-end graphics cards is indeed required (e.g. GeForce GTX 560M). 

If you do not need DirectX 11 and choose medium details, you can play Arkham City with a "standard" GPU like the GeForce GT 540M. Low-end graphics cards like the HD Graphics 3000 integrated in Intel's Sandy Bridge processor suffice low detail settings.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
