DIRT 2

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.

    Page one, first chart, the 560 Ti is "$149" instead of "$249".

    Although, I kinda prefer the former.

    Listed at $149 when you meant to write $249. Reply

    what's crazy is that when I posted and refreshed the page I was the only comment. It wasn't until page 3-4 of this review (as I was reading after the comment post) that I noticed yours was there so there is some lag between when a post is made and when others see it (even though you see it right away). I wish we had a time stamp feature on the post! :) Reply
