Submission + - Dirt 2 PC Game Demo Released, DX11 vs. DX9 Tested (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: The PC demo for Codemaster's upcoming DirectX 11 racing title, Dirt 2 has just hit the web and is available for
download. Dirt 2 is a highly anticipated racing sim, that also happens to feature leading-edge graphics effects. In addition to a DirectX 9 code path, Dirt 2 also utilizes a number of DirectX 11 features, like hardware tessellated dynamic water, animated crowd, dynamic cloth effects, in addition to DirectCompute 11-accelerated high definition ambient occlusion (HADO), full floating point high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, and full screen resolution post processing. Performance-wise DX11 didn't take its toll as much as you'd expect this early on in its adoption cycle.
