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 performance is slightly up across the board and you can see the overclock helps move our 1920 x 1200 FPS from the 60's range, into the 70's. While we also manage to see a nice little bump at 2560 x 1600, the 51 FPS here is just a little too low.
