Benchmark Results: DiRT 3

Intel Core i7-3930K And Core i7-3820: Sandy Bridge-E, Cheaper

From the bottom of our platforms to top, there is a measurable delta in DiRT 3 at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080, particularly when AA is disabled.

The overclocked Core i7-3820 is missing because it wasn’t able to consistently complete runs in DiRT 3, despite our aggressive settings. Dropping the multiplier with a 125 MHz BCLK made the issues worse, and the only way to run completely stably was to settle on a 100 MHz BCLK and accept the -3820’s maximum ratio of 43x with all cores active.
