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.




Firing up Dirt 3, we see the same pattern we've seen for the most part with the MARS II just offering us fantastic performance across the board that puts it ahead of the AMD offerings. AMD are no doubt stronger at the higher resolution and you can see the HD 6990 is able to close the gap when compared to the lower resolution performance. Unfortunately for the HD 6990, with the amount of power on offer from the MARS II, it manages to have a good 16 FPS on it still at 2560 x 1600.
