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.
Checking out Dirt 3 performance we continue to see this trend where the HD 7850 falls a little shy of that 60 FPS mark at 1920 x 1200 while the HD 7870 manages to jump past it with ease.
Moving to 2560 x 1600 also sees some nice gains, but with a 48 FPS average, we're still a bit too far away from where we'd want to be for a smooth gaming experience.
