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 Super Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Darkest Dungeon with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q 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.

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 Intel Core i9-9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Darkest Dungeon at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
