The above link is fro Dirt 2 Benchmarks. Both in DX9 and DX11. It looks like a single 5870 in DX11 4XAA mode doesn't do all that bad. Sure it stays below 60FPS most of the time. But it also seems that it stays at playable FPS 45 or above the whole time too. DX9 of course it does a lot better.
The 5970 Can play the game above 60FPS in DX11 mode w/4XAA. Does even better in DX9.

I would like to give you more facts in the article but I was in a rush when posting this...... SO enjoy:D

So for a first generation Direct X card it does very well. I was expecting lower Frame Rates!

Read the article and judge for your selves.

Also if interested....... The DEMO has been released as well. I believe the link I am giving you will lead you to it. But if it doesn't work out I found several other Links across Google that has it.

I am also planning on downloading it but haven't got a chance!

Hmm I get about the same score as that 5970 in DX11 everything maxxed, gotta go to work but I'll share my results here for sure.

Min is mid to high 50's, avg is 60-65, that is OC tho..... and nothing really SAYS its in DX11 at all, I just assume it is cos I have latest drivers, windows 7 retail, and a 5870, and set everything I can to Ultra, which is a fair few settings.
