Batman: Arkham Asylum packshot image
The game begins with Batman capturing the Joker after his latest plot, escorting him to Arkham Asylum for imprisonment. Due to Joker's recent attack on Gotham's prison, a large number of sane convicts have been transferred to Arkham. Joker, however has set a trap inside the asylum, using the its own impenetrable defenses against him. Batman must now not only try to escape from the hazards of Arkham, but also recapture the Joker and reveal his true intentions.
Gameplay places just as much focus on Batman's role as a detective as his combat prowess. Most of the game is played through an over-the-shoulder, third person perspective.It has been hinted that certain villains might be playable at some point in the game although this may be as an unlockable element after completing the game. Arkham was chosen as a location because of its limitations including the fact that it's located on an island. Arkham will be a persistent location that the player will be able to freely roam, including an area that serves as Batman's secret on-site Bat Cave.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Radeon RX 5700 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 8GB Performance Review

Booting up Batman: Arkham Asylum with the 1 year old Radeon RX 5700 8GB looks like it will get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Batman: Arkham Asylum rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the Radeon RX 5700 8GB will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the Radeon RX 5700 8GB and some 2GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Batman: Arkham Asylum. Look for a processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 5700 8GB solution can play Batman: Arkham Asylum at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0.25, 1440p costs $0.32 and 4K costs $0.55.
