Darkest Dungeon packshot image
Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic RPG about the stresses of dungeon crawling. You will lead a band of heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to their bodily health, and worse, a relentless assault on their mental fortitude! Five hundred feet below the earth you will not only fight unimaginable foes, but famine, disease, and the stress of the ever-encroaching dark. Darkest Dungeon focuses on the humanity and psychological vulnerability of the heroes and asks: What emotional toll does a life of adventure take?
Darkest Dungeon is not a game where every hero wins the day with shiny armor and a smile. It is a game about hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic acts.

Darkest Dungeon

GeForce GTX 1080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing Darkest Dungeon we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that Darkest Dungeon is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $1.48 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 4GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Darkest Dungeon screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ 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 $0.67 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.88 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.48 per frame.
