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 5800 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5800 XT Performance Review

The experience of playing Grim Dawn through a Radeon RX 5800 XT is going to 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.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5800 XT overshadows the Grim Dawn recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 177 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 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. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X.

In summary, if you are looking to play Grim Dawn in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 5800 XT can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 177 FPS in Ultra as well.
