Dirt: Showdown (DX11)



Among racing games, Dirt: Showdown is somewhat unique since it deals with demolition-derby type racing where the player is actually rewarded for wrecking other cars. It is also one of the many titles which falls under the Gaming Evolved umbrella so the development team has worked hard with AMD to implement DX11 features. In this case, we set up a custom 1-lap circuit using the in-game benchmark tool within the Nevada level.


2560x1600



At 2560x1600, Dirt Showdown’s performance obviously favors AMD cards since the GeForce products are literally cut off at the knees. According to NVIDIA they’ve been unable to crack the AMD-centric optimizations built into this game engine and the result is a distinct advantage for the HD 7970 GHz Edition. However, with that being said, we’re still seeing completely playable framerates from every card.


5760x1080



With the game engine supposedly favoring AMD’s solutions, it’s no surprise to see the GHz Edition competing at a nearly impossible level. Once again, the TITAN puts up a good fight against the GTX 690 but losing to a graphics card that’s priced at just $475 certainly doesn’t look good for a $1000 product.
