DIRT 3 Benchmarks! FX King?

ROUND 12 : DIRT 3 Benchmarks


source: Tomshardware

As you can see DIRT 3 really takes advantage of FX architecture. The most notable comparison is with the 6990 @ stock settings 830/1250 Mhz. The AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz manages to squeeze out 131.4 AVG FPS and 118.2 MIN FPS, while the intel i5 2500k @ 4.0 Ghz manages to only get 104.3 AVG FPS and 97.0 MIN FPS.  Thats 26%/22% MORE FPS. I was even shocked to see this! Good Job AMD! 

Also to be noted is the patch's modest improvement in FPS of 2.0%/3.6% for MIN/AVG FPS. 


  1. I already played Dirt 1 & 2 but I think Dirt 3 is better then 1 & 2. I hope that in Dirt 3 I get more difficult levels and also the graphics and sound effect are great. Now I am very excited to play this game.

  2. Yeah this game is great! its also nice to see little FPS drop with AA being put to 8x.
