Gigabyte BRIX i7-4500 Barebones Mini-PC Review (w/ G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz 16GB)

Dirt Showdown is the latest title in the franchise from Codemasters, based around the famous Colin McRae racing game series, although it no longer uses his name, since he passed away in 2007.

We used the game’s Low preset and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Our data was recorded using the game’s built-in benchmark.

The HD 4400 chip isn’t the latest-and-greatest in terms of gaming – far from it. It does manage to offer borderline-playable performance in not-too-demanding games at 1920 x 1080, however.

Dropping the resolution to 1280 x 720 should help to make titles more demanding than Dirt Showdown playable, albeit with reduced image quality settings.
