Dirt 2 PC Demo Brings DirectX 11 Graphics

Got your shiny DirectX 11-enabled Radeon HD 5800 series and you're itching to stretch its legs? Well then, the newly released demo of Dirt 2 is your best option. While Dirt 2 was released for consoles a few months ago, the wait continues for this still-unreleased PC version. The delay to the PC version was for the sake of graphical enhancements, and if you have a DX11 card, you'll be able to enjoy some of the new features.

Check out this video from Codemasters that runs through all the little enhancements afforded by this new generation of software and hardware:
