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

Radeon RX 480 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 8GB Performance Review

Getting the Darkest Dungeon running while using a Radeon RX 480 8GB can see it could return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Darkest Dungeon at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 480 8GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0.72 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.43 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Darkest Dungeon and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 4GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

In summary, the Radeon RX 480 8GB 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.
