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 960 2GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 960 2GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Darkest Dungeon through a GeForce GTX 960 2GB is going to 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 Darkest Dungeon we can see that this GeForce GTX 960 2GB is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 193FPS. But it could cost around $1.03 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $0.62 per FPS.

The GeForce GTX 960 2GB along with the right system memory, 4GB, 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.

In summary, if you are looking to play Darkest Dungeon in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 960 2GB 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 193 FPS in Ultra as well.
