Dirt: Showdown Performance

DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


Dirt: Showdown

Dirt Showdown is the latest in a string of great racing games from Codemasters. Like is predecessor, 2011's Dirt 3, this game sports impressive visuals with DX11 support. “Ultra” settings for shadow effects, global illumination, tessellation, and post processing elements, like depth of field, are available in the game, and in turn, crank up the workload on the graphics subsystem. The game engine also makes use of multi-core processors for higher performance on top-end systems. We tested the game configured with its Ultra graphics options with 4X anti-aliasing enabled at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.

Dirt: Showdown's advanced effects, like global illumination, show off the strengths of the Radeons, as is evident by the Radeon HD 7970 cards' strong performance. The GeForces, however, perform as expected, comparatively speaking--the highest clocked cards pull ahead of the lower clocks ones, as expected.
