To complete our Nvidia GTX 1060 video benchmark review roundup for now, we felt like we had to include a driving game. Where better to look than over at Codemaster's awesome Dirt Rally. So lets see how well the GTX 1060 can run Dirt Rally at 1080p screen resolutions. We will then take a look to see the difference between the reference GTX 1060 Founders Edition versus the overclocked GTX 1060 MSI version of the same card.

NOTE - We only have modern Nvidia graphics cards to test at the moment. Once the new AMD cards arrive we will compare all this awesome benchmark data against them as well. We also wanted to get the benchmarks out to you as soon as possible. However, we have lots of juicy data across the whole of Game-Debate for hardware comparisons against game system requirements and any other graphics card, so be sure to take a look here.
