If AMD's announcement of the RX 6000 series didn't satisfy your graphics urges, then how about a taste of Codemasters' racing sim Dirt 5 running all the latest and greatest Radeon tech.

"In this series we look at new technologies our partner studios have implemented in several upcoming next-generation titles. Graphics and Performance are at the core of the PC gaming experience. With AMD Radeon RX 6000 series & Ryzen 5000 series gamers can expect a new standard for high-performance gaming", AMD wrote. 

You're probably well aware of the sheer power under the hood of AMD's new graphics cards and it's certainly welcomed by many a PC player. I mean, c'mon - we've all been so focused on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X hardware improvements that it's about time PC players had their moment in the spotlight, wink wink. 

Anyway, Codemasters and AMD worked together to endow Dirt 5 with technologies like FidelityFX, which is actually a set of seven solutions that will boost image quality to the max.

These are Contrast Adaptive Sharpening, Ambient Occlusion, Variable Shading, Screen Space Reflections, HDR Mapper and Downsampler, all of which will be used by Codemasters' racing beast.

From ray tracing and denoising of any artefacts produced by it, to realistic geometry shading and intelligent management of resources to optimise visuals and performance - Dirt 5 and Codemasters definitely have a worthy ally in their court.
