Dirt: Showdown (stylised as DiRT: Showdown) is a video game published and developed by Codemasters. The player is entered in a series of “Tour” events, offering a range of races and tournaments to compete in. Winning these events gives the player prize money, which can be spent buying new cars or upgrading existing ones, and unlocks further races. Upon the successful completion of the series final, the next difficulty setting is unlocked, featuring faster opponents and longer races.
We used a 1080p setting with 2 x MSAA and the ‘medium’ image quality preset.
The game is playable on the AMD A10 5800K at these settings, and it isn’t on the Intel 3700k with HD4000 graphics. The experience on the AMD A10 5800k is actually extremely impressive, much like F1 2012 earlier in the review.
