NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti: Upsetting The $250 Marketby Ryan Smith on January 25, 2011 9:00 AM EST
Codemasters’ 2009 off-road racing game continues its reign as the token racer in our benchmark suite. As the first DX11 racer, DiRT 2 makes pretty thorough use of the DX11’s tessellation abilities, not to mention still being the best looking racer we have ever seen.
We’re once more looking at a game that generally favors NVIDIA cards, so there are not a lot of surprises to find in our results. The GTX 560 enjoys a 15% lead over the 6950 1GB at 1920, and it even enjoys a small lead over the 6970. As far as NVIDIA’s cards are concerned we’re looking at a typical 30% advantage over the GTX 460 1GB, and interestingly enough even the GTX 470 is nearly 10fps behind at 1920 resolution.
