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.

Here, another benchmark shows the performance one would expect to see from this group of high end graphics cards. The Amp Edition GTX 480 edges out the reference model by a few frames per second and still beats the Gigabyte's overclocked HD 5870. The 5970, however, maintains its lead.
