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 looks good, and you can again see some nice gains across the board when compared to the reference R9 270X 2GB.

 

While at 2560 x 1600 we manage to see a really nice boost in performance which takes us from the 40 FPS range into the mid 50 FPS range, you can see we still fall short of that 60 FPS number we want by just a few FPS.
