NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Review

Benchmarks - Dirt 3


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.

 

Dirt-3-Benchmark

 

The GTX 650 Ti handled Dirt 3 great and it ran very smooth throughout all of the runs we put it through, including a couple hours of gameplay.  The GTX 650 Ti is more than enough to run Dirt 3 at max settings at 1080P and, for all intensive purposes, matches the GTX 560's performance.  The GTX 650 Ti bests the 9800GT (in DX10) with about 1.4 times the framerate, and falls behind the GTX 560 Ti which gives 1.19 times the average framerate.  The GTX 660 continues to stay on the same trend, delivering about 1.55 times the framerates (not surprising since they're both on the same GK106 GPU).

did you miss something? hell yah!
remember how 9800gt is a c2d era card?
now compare gtx 650ti to it on an [email protected] and we have something of a GPU upgrade advise here.

I see where you are coming from, but most games today are exceedingly GPU-dependent, and you could possibly make the argument that the upgrade would be even more pronounced because the GPU would make up a greater percentage of the overall "horsepower" assuming the C2D doesn't create a blatant bottleneck. Of course if it did, you're point is very pertinent because the upgrade would require a new chipset.

Thanks for the input and perspective!

another thing to keep in mind is that 9800gt is only 512mb and is not a 1080p GPU and therefore should not be tested at higher than 1050p resolutions.
that and use quad or c2d OCed cpu to pit it against gtx 650ti for more accurate comparison results.
