It's time for an update for all you gamers out there playing any of the newest round of ground-breaking NVIDIA-powered PC games, this GeForce 290.36 Beta Driver release correcting bugs and adding features you might never have known were there in the first place!

When you speak about Batman: Arkham City, you speak about not only the next chapter in a line of games that've redefined the superhero genre of video games, but have taken the ultra-immersive nature of the detective / puzzle solving game and have made it intuitive enough to be enjoyable for all - and the graphics are absolutely unmatched. What we've got here is a rig provided by NVIDIA to test this game specifically, an Alienware M17xR3 gaming laptop with a GeForce GTX 580 DirectX 11 GPU inside, this along with the newest set of NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 wireless 3D glasses. It's a very GREEN situation, needless to say, and playing the most advanced game on the market with the most impressive graphics processor on the planet, this is almost a no-brainer.
It's time to check out Batman: Arkham City for the first OFFICIAL time running with NVIDIA's DirectX 11 Graphics and GPU Physics, certainly a sight to behold and set to be released on November 15th!

Now behold, footage from Arkham City, a game running with the graphics card it was made to run with, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560, with PhysX enabled for the greatest amount of detail you can imagine!
