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.



Unfortunately for AMD, NVIDIA cards dominate in this title due to their optimizations for the Directcompute-accelerated global illumination used in Dirt Showdown.


Far Cry 3 (DX11)



One of the best looking games in recent memory, Far Cry 3 has the capability to bring even the fastest systems to their knees. Its use of nearly the entire repertoire of DX11ís tricks may come at a high cost but with the proper GPU, the visuals will be absolutely stunning.

To benchmark Far Cry 3, we used a typical run-through which includes several in-game environments such as a jungle, in-vehicle and in-town areas.




In this title, both the HD 7790 and GTX 650 Ti run neck and neck with the overclocked Sapphire card retaining the ability to pull ahead by a hairís width. Once again though, the HD 7790 provides a perfect gap filling solution between AMDís HD 7770 and HD 7850.
