Dirt3 uses Ego 2.0 Game Technology Engine (more commonly referred to as Ego Engine or EGO, stylised ego), which is a video game engine developed by Codemasters. Ego is a modified version of the Neon game engine that was used in Colin McRae: Dirt and was developed by Codemasters and Sony Computer Entertainment using Sony Computer Entertainment’s PhyreEngine cross-platform graphics engine. The Ego engine was developed to render more detailed damage and physics as well as render large-scale environments.

Dirt 3 PC Game Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX680 leads at all the resolutions except the triple-panel setup that runs at 5760×1080! We wouldn’t call a 0.2 FPS difference significant though, so both cards are equally playable here. In case you are wondering the minimum framerate on the GeForce GTX 680 was 37 and on the MSI R7970 Lightning it was 38. Once again, a minute difference that shows no significant difference. Keep in mind that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 costs $100 less though.
