Dirt 2

Dirt 2 was released in September 2009 and provides a sequel to the original Colin McRae: Dirt racing game. Codemasters delayed the PC version of Dirt 2 so that they could enhance their Ego engine with DirectX 11 effects. Dirt 2 is also a solid benchmark for multi-core processors since DX11 is designed to take advantage of multi-threaded system architectures.

Dirt 2 results confirmed previous scores as the Matrix 5870 hit 51 FPS on average, with minimum frame rates of 41 FPS. It was 9% faster than Gigabyte's SOC 470 and 12% slower than Zotac's 480 Amp Edition.
