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 RTX 2080 Super Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Grim Dawn with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Grim Dawn when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play Grim Dawn at 4K. We expect to see around the 169 FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Grim Dawn. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 4GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i9-9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Grim Dawn at, because you can get 169 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
