GeForce GTX 1080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing Dark Souls 3 we quickly see it can get a very strong 113 FPS. To get that Dark Souls 3 is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 37 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 $18.92 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

Definitely run Dark Souls 3 at 1440p Ultra to maximise the potential resolution and graphical quality that the GeForce GTX 1080 can deliver with this game.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Dark Souls 3 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 37 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 62 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 81 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $8.64 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $11.29 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $18.92 per frame.
