    Default Dirt 2: DirectX 9 vs. DirectX 11 graphics compared

    The PC version of Colin McRae Dirt 2 offers a DirectX 9 and a DirectX 11 rendering path. PC Games Hardware explains and demonstrates the differences.


    Colin McRae Dirt 2: Engine

    Codemasters delayed the PC version of Colin McRae: Dirt 2 in order to upgrade the Ego Engine of the racing game with DirectX 11 support. The cross platform architecture is capable of all modern rendering tricks but some are only used with DX11. The current API offers Hardware Tessellation which is used for a more detailed audience, tessellated cloth (banners and flags) as well as a more realistic visualization of water with more waves and splashes. Due to the Full Floating Point HDR Illumination (FP16) and High Definition Ambient Occlusion calculated via DirectCompute, Post Effects like Motion blur and filtered Soft Shadows especially the light and shadow effects of Colin McRae: dirt 2 are very realistic. Furthermore Dirt 2 receives a benefit from multi-core CPUs because of the multithreading feature of DirectX 11.

    Colin McRae Dirt 2: DirectX 9 vs. DirectX 11

    In a direct comparison the differences on the audience only become noticeable if you get close and pay attention - some more polygons in the right place make the figures look a little better. The flying flags are "nice to have” while the improved water visualization is really good: The car really ploughs through the water and builds up a little bow wave - additional particles on splashes make the whole scene more realistic. But the biggest difference between DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 is the illumination. Due to HDAO and nice Post Effects the visual appearance of Dirt 2 with DirectX 11 is less "overbright” and smoother. The more realistic look of the DirectX 11 version might convince some players, since there have already been mods for Race Driver Grid that were reducing exactly those warm colors and thus created a more real appearance.

    We are currently working on benchmarks to demonstrate the difference in performance between DirectX 9 and DirectX 11.

    I didnt find any impressive result on DX11. Its basically directx9 with extra detail :S I think Dirt2 couldn't use the full potential of DX11

    Or may be dx11 doesnt have that much potential. I believe a developer of codemaster level already have done everything they could do to get the best out of dx11. Looks like it is a eye candy afterall. As a gamer, i am not that much visual craze that i must have that little extra sparcle. A better game play is much more important to me.

    Just my thoughts. I've been telling everyone from the beginning that DiRT 2 won't use DX11 to the fullest.
