Arkham City DirectX 11 Issue

The Batman: Arkham City Forums have word that they've tracked down some performance issues in Rocksteady's action/stealth sequel to DirectX 11 problems, and until a title update to remedy this is released, they recommend reverting to DirectX 9 (thanks PC Perspective). Here's word:

PC DirectX 11 Issues Please Read
We have received reports of performance issues from players of Batman: Arkham City on PC. After researching the matter, we found that running the game with DX 11 is causing the performance issues. We’re working on a title update to address this matter and expect to make it available in the near future.

In the meantime, a workaround for this issue is to run the game with DX 9 instead of DX 11. Instructions on how to turn off DX 11 are listed below.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience with your gameplay experience and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
