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 1070

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1070 Performance Review

Getting the Darkest Dungeon running while using a GeForce GTX 1070 can see it could get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1070 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 $0.88 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.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Darkest Dungeon, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
