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, but this is a game that's always favored AMD offerings.

 

While you can see the MSI GTX 780 Lightning scores quite close to the much cheaper Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC, the main fact is that we've got playable FPS at all numbers, including the higher 2560 x 1600 resolution.
