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 III performance across the board is really strong and we can again see that the overclock really helps us move away from that 60 FPS average that the reference clocked video card manages to just achieve.

 

As for against the GTX 680, we can again see at the highest resolution we manage to outperform the reference GTX 680 while the overclocked video card manages to get a decent jump on the HD 7970 in this case.
