Results: DiRT 3

Codemasters has probably the best looking racing games on the planet.  They pulled out all stops with DiRT 3.  This particular title features plenty of DX11 effects and tessellation (though I think they took a step back with water effects as compared to DiRT 2).  The game used the Ultra preset with 4X AA and 16X AF enabled.  The built in Aspen benchmark is used.

DiRT used to be AMD’s playground, but now NVIDIA has really caught up here.  The 560 Ti excels at this title, but all of the cards take a pretty massive hit when running at 2560×1600.  What has struck me most about a lot of these benchmarks is how close the 6870 is to the 6950.
