Grim Dawn packshot image
Grim Dawn is an action role-playing game intended for digital distribution on the PC. It is being developed by veterans of Iron Lore entertainment, the makers of Titan Quest. Grim Dawn is being built with Crate's own improved version of the Iron Lore engine and toolset; the same technology used to create Titan Quest. As a spiritual successor, Grim Dawn will attempt to better perfect the magical formula of exploration, character advancement, and loot collection pioneered by Diablo.
Players will be thrust into the dark, war-torn world of Cairn where a once proud empire has been brought to ruin and the human race driven to the edge of extinction. Cairn has become ground zero of an eternal war between two otherworldly powers, one seeking to use human bodies as a resource, the other intent upon destroying the human race before that can happen. This cataclysmic war has not only decimated human civilization but is warping the very fabric of reality and, in its wake, giving life to new horrors.
For humankind it is the dawn of a grim new age where iron has replaced gold as currency and the importance of salt as a weapon makes it far too valuable to waste on food. Small enclaves of human survivors exist scattered throughout the world, holed up in hidden refuges. These humans have quietly watched the warring invaders destroy one another and have become wise to the strengths and vulnerabilities of their otherworldly foes. A few survivors have begun to exhibit strange new abilities after surviving possession or exposure to the warp. These unnatural powers are feared by some but give many new hope of launching a resistance to fight the "outsiders" and reclaim what's left of their world.

Grim Dawn

Radeon RX 480X 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480X 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old Radeon RX 480X 4GB while playing Grim Dawn we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 480X 4GB overshadows the Grim Dawn recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 123 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $3.66 cost per FPS and a $2.17 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Grim Dawn, as long as you have 4GB of RAM or more.

To summarise, Radeon RX 480X 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Grim Dawn screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 123 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $1.66 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $2.17 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $3.66 per frame.
