Batman: Arkham City
We did a little Batman-style free running through the rooftops of Gotham for this one.
The plots show intermittent spikes for all of the cards, which is what we've come to expect from this test scenario. We cover a lot of ground in this test, and the game engine has to stream in detail for new areas as we go.
Unfortunately, those spikes are more frequent and severe on the Radeon HD 7870. Although it looks competitive with the GTX 660 Ti in terms of its FPS average, the 7870 drops into last place in our latency-focused 99th percentile frame time metric.
