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 GT 1030

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GT 1030 Performance Review

We can see that when playing Darkest Dungeon with a GeForce GT 1030 will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Darkest Dungeon when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing Darkest Dungeon on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 93 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Darkest Dungeon. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 4GB of RAM.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce GT 1030 card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Darkest Dungeon at, because you can get 93 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 156 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
