The Darkness 2 packshot image
The Darkness II breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins.
It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Franchetti crime family, used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power, and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.

The Darkness 2

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB Performance Review

Playing The Darkness 2 on the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB, which is a 5 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 200+ FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

When looking at the recommended requirements for The Darkness 2 we can see that this GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 100FPS. But it could cost around $2.99 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $1.79 per FPS.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB along with the right system memory, 2GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz processor or better.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding The Darkness 2 frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 100 FPS, 1440p will get 167 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $1.37, 1440p frames cost $1.79 each and then the 4K costs $2.99 per frame.
