Batman: Arkham Knight is one of the newer games running nicely now on Steam Play. With Arkham Knight also being benchmark-friendly and running via DXVK, it's been added to the Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org. The RADV Vulkan performance on the Radeon GPUs here is quite good with the Radeon VII coming in between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 SUPER while the Radeon RX 5700 XT between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2070 SUPER while the RX 5700 was just shy of the RTX 2060 SUPER. All the graphics cards tested could run this Windows game fine at 1080p with high quality settings.

When moving to 1440p high quality settings, the Radeon VII tied with the RTX 2080 SUPER while the RX 5700 XT remained right behind the RTX 2070 SUPER. As a reminder, the Radeon testing was done with the RADV ACO back-end enabled, which has really been helping the Radeon Linux gaming performance with Vulkan titles. Even at 1440p, this game was still running smooth on the likes of the RX 590 and RX 5500 XT.

At 4K with low quality settings, the Radeon RX 5700 and RTX 2070 and better were delivering above a 60 FPS average for this Steam Play + DXVK title.
