Benchmark Results: F1 2012
We’re replacing DiRT 3 with F1 2012, which is another of Codemasters’ racing sims based on its own EGO Engine 2.0.
Although we don't have comparison data from last quarter, we immediately see lower frame rates compared to what we're used to from DiRT 3.
This quarter's $500 gaming PC handles the High detail preset easily, so let's crank up the settings.
The more demanding Ultra detail preset with 8x MSAA knocks our stock rig down to an average of 45 FPS. Frame rates appear limited by platform limitations, though the 14% speed-up realized from graphics overclocking does let us know that graphics have an impact as well.
