Dirt Rally is developed by British video game developer Codemasters using the in house Ego engine. Development began with a small team of individuals following the release of their 2012 video game Dirt: Showdown. Codemasters have emphasised a desire to create a simulation with Dirt Rally. They started by prototyping a handling model and creating tracks based on map data. The game employs a different physics model from previous titles, rebuilt from the ground up.
We test at 1080p with 8x MSAA and the ultra image quality setting enabled.
Both Nitro+ OC cards manage to maintain a constant frame rate at 60 or above at all times. There is actually only one instance when the 4GB version drops 1 frame below the 60fps mark. The 8GB card performs better, averaging 85 frames per second.
