Lucid Virtu MVP (HyperFormance) Tested with ASRock Z77 and Intel Ivy Bridge - Benchmarks - Dirt 3

We look at Lucid Virtu MVP; a big technology for the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform due later this month. Is it any good, though?

| Socket LGA 1155 in Motherboards | Posted: Apr 5, 2012 6:11 am

Dirt 3

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

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.

Under Dirt 3 we can see the results are a little more reversed here for the GTX 680. We see the lower resolution take a slight hit in performance while the highest resolution sees a gain.

 

The biggest issue is that we see a drop at 2560 x 1600 with the HD 7870, and it's again in the place where we need it (an increase in FPS) most.
