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 1920x1080 and 1280x720.

The Radeon 6970M performed very well in the F1 2010 benchmark. The Radeon 6970M produced benchmark results nearly twice as high as the GeForce 470M in both single and dual card configurations. This is especially impressive considering that the GeForce 470M's performance was far from poor. The 6970M CrossFire configuration suffered from a performance anomaly that locked the FPS at 50, however.
