Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Review |

DirectX 11 - Dirt 3


In DiRT 3 Complete Edition, you’ll race iconic cars representing 50 years of off-road motorsport across three continents – from the forests of Michigan to the infamous roads of Finland and the national parks of Kenya. You’ll also express yourself in the stunning Gymkhana mode, inspired by Ken Block’s incredible freestyle driving event, and take on other modes including Rallycross, Trailblazer and Landrush. Powered by Codemasters’ award-winning EGO Engine, DiRT 3 Complete Edition features Flashback to rewind time, genre-leading damage and you can take on all game modes in split-screen and competitive online multiplayer.

Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - Dirt 3 - DX11 - 1080p

Dirt 3 is now several years old and represents the ‘oldie’ in our benchmark suite (especially at 1080p) but shows a decent range of results and exaggerated frame-rate spreads to help with comparison purposes.  It comes as no surprise that the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti absolutely annihilates this benchmark with an average frame-rate well exceeding the 200 FPS mark.  All of our cards perform very well and deliver a AAA gaming experience, however, everything above the Radeon R9 Fury X is CPU bound in this benchmark causing the positional anomaly seen in the chart.  Let’s see if 1440p can bring them down to earth…

Yet again, you will find your CPU holding the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti back.  Switching up to 1440p virtually keeps the frame-rates identical to 1080p with our top cards still hugging onto the 200fps average FPS mark.  The Radeon R9 Fury X begins to show signs of tailing off that mark but still blitzes the maximum frequency of a 144hz monitor.  Our other cards wane slightly but not by much (even the Radeon R9 280X holding nearly 100fps average FPS at 1440p) with the Radeon R9 290 and GeForce GTX 970 being a dead-heat.


  1. Now that’s a damned fine review Mr T. 😉
    You make me regret going with the EVGA 1080 Ti SC (Superclocked) GPU after reading this. 🙂
