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.

Looking at Dirt 3 numbers we can see some nice gains are seen across the board. At the highest resolution the extra 4 FPS equates to an increase of around 10%. Unfortunately we're still below that 60 FPS mark at this resolution. 1920 x 1200 and lower, though, we've got some strong numbers.
