Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512 in the test: The G92 can flex its muscles

Colin McRae Dirt

The Colin McRae series has always been a highlight for all racing game fans who also have itcould get a little dirtier. In the rally series, you don't always drive on asphalt. After the quality of the series has flattened a bit recently, the developer Codemaster has pulled the handbrake with Colin McRae Dirt and found old virtues - and added many new features. The newly developed graphics engine, which is undoubtedly looking for its equal in the racing scene at the moment, is also impressive. Dirt does not use FP16-HDRR, but can convince with some (albeit exaggerated) chic lighting effects, detailed textures, beautiful landscapes, a great foresight and well-done particle effects. But this also has its price: The hardware requirements are extremely high and cause problems for most PCs. Reason enough for us to include Colin McRae Dirt in the benchmark course.
