We tested at 2560×1600 with fullscreen: on, antialiasing:on , Anisotrophic filtering: 16x, Shadow Quality: High, Ambient Occlusion: on, Geometry Detail: High and APEX PhysX: medium.
With PhysX enabled this is a demanding game and the lower end hardware struggles at these settings. No such problems for the Asus Matrix Platinum GTX580 however, with an average frame rate of 53.
