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.
No problems powering this game at 1080p. The Nvidia GTX 1080 takes second position behind the R9 295X2 which holds both higher average and minimum frame rates. We recorded a 15 frame per second advantage for the Nvidia GTX 1080 against the overclocked Gigabyte GTX980 Ti XTREME Gaming solution.
