Batman: Arkham Asylum at 5040 x 1050 pixels plus widescreen benchmarks
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum won't be released until September, but there already are benchmarks and a widescreen mode test available.
Our colleagues at the Widescreen Gaming Forum mainly focus on widescreen modes supported by PC games. Now they have published a detailed widescreen report for Batman: Arkham Asylum. Furthermore they have run benchmarks to test the performance in different resolutions, including surround gaming modes like 5040 x 1050.
According to their report the tested version of Batman: Arkham Asylum offers native support for widescreen and surround gaming screen resolutions. But while the field of view is increased in the game itself, the menus are cut in height. Below you can see sample shots that demonstrate the effects.
Besides the test for the supported widescreen resolutions there are also benchmarks of Batman: Arkham Asylum at WSGF. The game was run at maximal graphics settings and different resolutions. The Geforce GTX 295 that has been used for the tests delivered more than 40 fps if the resolution is set to 1920 x 1200 pixels or below. At 2560 x 1600 the framerate drops below 30 fps and at 5040 x 1050 pixels the graphics card only delivers about 15 fps. Besides that 18 combinations of detail settings, Anti Aliasing and Physx settings have been tested to find the best compromise between visual quality and performance.
