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 560 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 560 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old Radeon RX 560 4GB while playing Darkest Dungeon we quickly see it can 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.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play Darkest Dungeon at 4K. We expect to see around the 200+ FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

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. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the AMD Ryzen R5 1400 and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, Radeon RX 560 4GB 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 $0.30 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.40 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.67 per frame.
