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.
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).
