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 Vega 8

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 8 Performance Review

Playing Darkest Dungeon on the Radeon RX Vega 8, which is a 2 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

But then the Radeon RX Vega 8 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 114 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 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 4GB system memory would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Darkest Dungeon frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 114 FPS, 1440p will get 192 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the Radeon RX Vega 8 launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
