Dirt was tested at 1920×1200 with 2x anti-aliasing and no anisotropic filtering. The detail levels within the game were all set to their maximum level.

There is a real gap in performance in this title with the 8800 GS once again coming out as the performance leader. The most significant difference in performance is the minimum frames per second figure where the GeForce is eight ahead of the 3850, but overall the Radeon cannot compete. The statistics do not tell the whole story though as the Radeon does actually feel playable. The reason for this is that the framerates are quite stable and due to the design of the engine rather than appearing to stutter the game looks sluggish. Could you play on the 3850 at these detail levels? Yes. Would you get a far better experience on the 8800 GS? Yes.
