DiRT Rally 2.0 All Graphics Settings

Graphic Settings

Display Mode
I prefer to use Windowed Borderless, this has the advantage of making it easy to switch between gaming and other programs like Sound Mixer, Recording tools, Youtube or whatever..

ON – My monitor doesn’t support higher hz/fps then 60 and on my machine it doesn’t look good when VSync is off.

Using VSync ON also has the benefit of lowering the power usage / noise of the GPU

4x MSAA looks really nice on 2560×1440 , especially rocks and trees has less hysteresis / sharp edges

Use CMAA if you need more performance, though its not as nice as 4x MSAA

I don’t know what this foul setting from hell is supposed to do, but the whole game looks like Nintendo if you enable it. !!!

Advanced Graphics

Quality Preset: Custom

Shader Detail 
HIGH – Never use LOW, it will break all shadow effects and make textures look like crap.

Texture Detail 
ULTRA – This setting mostly consume GPU RAM and if you have plenty, just turn it up.

HIGH – using ULTRA has a high cost in rain weather, while High looks plenty good.

Screen Space Reflections 

Medium – You wont notice the difference when driving, and Medium looks quite good. Anything higher just ads finer detail and cost much performance.

Night Lightning 
ULTRA – You might tweak this down if you get bad performance at night.

Ambient Occlusion 
HIGH – I couldn’t tell the difference to ULTRA, and High looks plenty good.

Advanced Ambient Occlusion 
OFF – It cost too much and didn’t add enough detail.

ULTRA – This makes smoke and effects look good, tweak it down a notch if you need performance

Advanced Blending 
OFF – This feature cost a LOT of performance and only makes trees look better. 4x MSAA is much cheaper to use.


Medium – anything higher cost A LOT of performance, but medium looks good. I think there is a performance bug because i dont see much difference, only in frames per second.



Vehicle Detail 
High – it doesn’t seem to cost much to run high, but you might get more fps in replay mode.

Ultra – you might find some performance here, but not a lot.

Ultra – also a bit of performance to gain from lower settings…

Ultra – It seems that there is little difference between lower settings and ultra. I found that there is a performance bug with trees that cant be solved by lowering tree-details. just keep it high.

Ground Cover 
High – makes the game look pretty and doesn’t cost much to have on High

ON – they dont cost much and makes the game look more real.

Motion Blur 
ON – This is mostly a preference thing. only a few fps if turned off.

God Rays 
OFF – I found them very distracting

Chromatic Aberration 
ON – Makes some details look nicer

ON – VERY IMPORTANT !! to keep this ON. Without it the light-engine doesn’t work properly

Lense Flares 
OFF – I don’t like them, my eyes are not a camera… turn on if you like.

Light Streaks 
OFF – Also dont like these..

Lens Dust 
OFF – I prefer off to get clean screenshots .. hehe.. clean… get it ?


The optimal setting is when the darkest logo is BARELY visible.

I have a calibrated monitor and can easily see the black logo at 1.00

At 0.8 it’s pretty much gone, so for me it’s between 0.8 and 1.00
