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 Ultra HD 4k with 8x MSAA and the ultra image quality setting enabled.
At Ultra HD 4K, the AMD R9 295X2 dominates this particular engine and is the only solution to hold a minimum frame rate over 60 at all times. The Asus Republic Of Gamers Strix GTX 1080 scores well however, hitting an average of almost 60. Removing the AA would help increase frame rates to the 60+ sweet zone.
