Officially known as Colin Mcrae: Dirt 2, this game carries on the long tradition of Colin Mcrae series. Since taking on the Dirt moniker, this game has expanded from just rally racing to include a lot of off-road events. Powered by the EGO engine, the PC version of the game was delayed to include DX11 features such as hardware tessellation. Addition of DX11 features makes Dirt 2, one of the first games to support DX11.
We are using the demo version which includes an official benchmark. The demo can be downloaded from official site http://www.dirt2game.com/.
Here are the settings used:
Our GT 240 GDDR3 trails the 9600 GT by 7 FPS on average, while beating out the HD 4650 by 5 FPS. Overclocking the GT 240 GDDR3 does get it close to the 9600 GT but the difference is too great to be covered by overclocking.
