Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth packshot image
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a Lovecraftian horror first-person action-adventure game developed by Headfirst Productions and published by Bethesda Softworks in 2005, in conjunction with 2K Games. The game is based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, author of The Call of Cthulhu and progenitor of the Cthulhu Mythos. It is effectively a re-imagining of Lovecraft's novella The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Although the story diverges in several places and features a different protagonist, several levels in the game mirror passages from the novella. A sub-plot of the game is inspired by Lovecraft's novella The Shadow Out of Time.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce GTX 1060 will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 2GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth 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 $0.34 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.45 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.75 per frame.
