XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 Video Card ReviewSat, Aug 11, 2012 - 12:00 AM
Dirt Showdown is the latest title in the offroad racing franchise from Codemasters. Showdown is less about rally and more about all out destruction of your opponents on the race track. Dirt Showdown runs on the same engine as Dirt 3, but really shines because you’re supposed to see all the chaos and damage caused by wrecking and crashing your vehicle. Dirt Showdown is also a DirectX 11 title, so we are able to take advantage of tessellation and it really shines in this beautiful title.
For our tests in Dirt Showdown we ran everything on the Ultra preset, with 8 x MSAA.
Here we can see that the XFX 7870 Black Edition was able to best all of the other cards, across all resolutions.
