Batman: Arkham Origins at 1080p (or 1920x1200 as accidentally selecting that from PTS) was easily playable on all sixteen of the graphics cards tested. Even the R9 285 / R9 290 when opting for the AMDGPU DRM driver to utilize the RADV Vulkan driver led to frame rate averages around 120 FPS. At this low resolution for the several year old game, there wasn't any real benefit to the newer NVIDIA RTX graphics cards. It was interesting to note how the minimum frame-rates on the RX Vega series and GTX 1080 Ti ended up being much higher than the other graphics cards tested.

Batman: Arkham Origins at 1440p on Linux via Steam Play was still scoring above a 60 FPS average with the RX 560. The higher-end graphics cards could still easily run with ease.

4K for this Batman game on Steam Play is most interesting for the newer hardware. Overall both the NVIDIA and AMD graphics performance with DXVK / Steam Play was good. The Radeon cards with RADV saw the RX 580 successfully competing with the GTX 1060 while the RX Vega 64 was in line with the GTX 1070.
