Dirt 3 is a popular rally racing game, one of the several popular racing series by Codemasters, and uses their EGO 2.0 Engine to create very realistic environments and particle effects while using the latest Direct X11, which the GTX 500-series cards were designed for.
The benchmark was run with maximum settings at 1920x1080 resolution and 8XQSAA.
The relative performance from the stock ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII are shown in the table below:
|ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII OC||Zotac GTX 560 Multiview||ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Core|
In DirectX 11 performance in Dirt 3, we see overclocks having a stronger effect on performance. The key point to pick out here is that in this DX11 test, the overclocked GTX 560 Ti DCUII performed almost identically to the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core.
