DiRT 3 boasts more cars, more locations, more routes and more events than any other game in the series, including over 50 rally cars representing the very best from five decades of the sport. With more than double the track content of 2009's hit, DiRT 3 will see players start at the top as a professional driver, with a top-flight career in competitive off-road racing complimented by the opportunity to express themselves in Gymkhana-style showpiece driving events.

We again see both platforms perform very close to each other with scores identical at 2560 x 1600. At 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050 we see the X58 setup comes out ahead, but at both resolutions it's by only 2 FPS.
