The iconic DiRT® Series returns with the 4th installment on June 9th. DiRT 4, developed by Codemasters, is an off-road racing game that puts you behind the wheel of over 50 amazing rally cars, rallycross vehicles, buggys and trucks. Show off your driving skills and pull off e-brake turns on beautiful stages and circuits around the world.

The game is extremely well optimized and ran great across all Radeon™ RX 500 series graphics cards paired with my RYZEN™ 1700X. I started off with a couple of training runs and before long I was ready to start my own Radeon RX racing team in career mode.

The recommended system requirements for DIRT 4 are:

  • OS: Windows 10 64bit
  • Processor: AMD FX 8320 or Intel Core i5 4690 or greater
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Video card: Radeon™ R9 390 or greater

I tested each of the cards on the Liske Forest course with my red and black Ford Fiesta. The Radeon™ RX 580 and 570 cards ran at maximum settings (Ultra) at 1440p and 1080p respectively. No tweaks to the advanced settings were necessary. The outstanding optimizations in DIRT 4 provided enough headroom for me to maintain 60+ fps on ultrawide displays, 3440×1440 on the Radeon RX 580 and 2560×1080 for the Radeon RX 570 running on the same Ultra settings.

Despite a couple barrel roll crashes, I had a lot of fun testing this game. DiRT 4 has got me back into the racing genre and I’ll be playing more this weekend. There’s something very satisfying about executing an extended drift around a corner at high speeds. I highly recommend playing the game with a racing wheel or a gamepad controller for the best experience.

For the best performance possible, make sure you grab the latest copy of the Radeon™ Software Crimson Edition driver.

  1. 1080P + max settings ( R9290X / I5 4690k / 8gb vengence LP Ram ) runs great for me, i have not tested the fps yet but its plays and runs lovely.
