DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

F1 2010

Though Codemasters still continues to torture us with their ridiculously complicated labyrinth of game menus, we’ve found ourselves coming back to one of their titles for a taste of bleeding-edge DX11 benchmarking. F1 2010 is their latest racing simulation and like Dirt 2, it sports impressive visuals with DX11 support. “Ultra” settings for shadow effects and post processing elements like depth of field then become available to the gamer and in turn, crank up the workload on the graphics subsystem. The game engine also makes use of multi-core processors for higher performance on top-end systems. We tested the game configured with its Ultra graphics options at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.

F1 2010 proved to be a strong point for the new Radeon HD 6790. Here, AMD new baby is able to pull ahead even the GeForce GTX 460.  It also clearly outpaced the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, regardless of whether it was factory overclocked or not.
