Dirt Showdown performance is awesome across the board and you can see that the FPS wall seems to come in at a later point then previously. While it's possible that this is due to the card, it's more likely that the latest driver is what really offers the performance boost. We again see at the highest resolution the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB manages to outpace all our other setups here.

 

 

Nexuiz

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Nexuiz was not being kind to us at all. Not only did we have trouble with it just completing a run, when it did, you can see the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB sits below where it should compared to the other setups here.

 

An update to Nexuiz at some point saw us run into some problems when it came to benchmarking the game in certain scenarios. We're hoping that it's something that is fixed in the near future as it's a great benchmark based on the Cryengine. Looking above, though, you can see the numbers aren't where they should be, or where they need to be for the game to be playable.
