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.

Across the board we see nice gains in performance with the best being seen at the highest resolution. You can see the overclocked GTX 680 does manage to win out here, but at the highest resolution AMD perform very strong here.
