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.

Like a number of other benchmarks, you can see that the numbers the new R7 260X throw out are pretty much identical to the HD 7790 1GB. Unfortunately this also means we're below the 60 FPS number we want at all resolutions.

 

On the bright side, we're only 2 FPS below it at 1680 x 1040 and 9 FPS below it at 1920 x 1200. With a bit of an image quality change, you should be able to get those numbers up to a playable level.
