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 really appreciates the overclock. You can see at 1680 x 1050 we move from 58 FPS on the reference clocked card to 64 FPS on our overclocked HIS one.

 

While we do fall short of 60 FPS at 1920 x 1200, the boost from 51 FPS to 57 FPS is strong and if you did want to game at this resolution, you really would only need to drop the in-game detail ever so slightly.
