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.

Dirt 3 is another intensive game and you can see at 2560 x 1600 the HD 7970 manages to just scrape in at 60 FPS, throw in the XFX HD 7970 Black Edition Double D, though, and we can see a 11% boost in performance, which sees our average move to 67 FPS.
