We tested Dirt 5 on a mediocre gaming PC because, it is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards and processors. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly without any issues on a RTX 3080 or a RX 5700 XT.

The game ran quite smooth for the most part. Except at some instances, when there are a lot of cars on the screen and there is some heavy amount of collisions and mud slinging, the frames tend to dip down a lot. Overall, people shouldn’t have any problem enjoying this fun title on a medium end gaming rig.
