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 RTX 2080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 2080 to play Darkest Dungeon shows us that we expect it to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

At $1.38 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play Darkest Dungeon at a respectable 200+ frame rate on 4K Ultra.

The GeForce RTX 2080 along with the right system memory, 4GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz processor or better.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. Darkest Dungeon gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $1.38 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.99 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.83 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.59 per frame.
