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

GeForce GT 1030

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GT 1030 Performance Review

We can see that when playing Grim Dawn with a GeForce GT 1030 will return a consistently high 98 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Grim Dawn when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

While you can get a solid 53 FPS at 1440p, you might also consider pushing it up to 4K. Where it would get 45 FPS on High 4K and 66 FPS on Medium.

To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in Grim Dawn. It feels that the GeForce GT 1030 is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 141 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 111 FPS, 1440p High setting: 75 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 53 FPS.
