Colin McRae's DiRT 2
Colin McRae's Dirt 2 features five racing disciplines, all of which are playable offline and online. In addition, three 'special modes' are included. Dirt 2 runs on an updated version of the EGO engine, which powered Codemasters' Race Driver: GRiD as well. The engine most notably features an updated physics engine, which models realistic weight transfer during turning maneuvers, allowing the player to incorporate advanced driving techniques such as the Scandinavian Flick.
For settings, the highest available in the Demo were used, mostly Ultra or High, aside from Post-Processing which was at medium (for DX9). The in-game Benchmark feature was utilized for testing.
Benchmark Results: In Colin McRae's DiRT 2, the PNY GT 240 is very slightly above the AXLE GT 240 and HD 4670. It is nothing to write home about, but for a racing game 25-30FPS is playable, and this at highest possible settings, too.
