DiRT Showdown is the new arcade racing game from the team that brought you the award-winning DiRT series, uncaged in 2012. Pick up and play controls combine with electrifying events, frenzied crowds and stunning graphics to deliver high octane, dive in and drive thrills from event one.

Dirt Showdown looks good and the overclock again gives us a boost at all resolution. At the highest resolution, though, you can see we still fall shy by just 2 FPS at the highest resolution. A slight detail adjustment would get us the numbers we need, though.
