Dark Souls 3 PC Performance Review

4K Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti

At 4K we can finally give our GTX 980Ti and our R9 Fury X a proper workout, with the game finally delivering workloads that are intensive enough to make the game drop below 60FPS at even low settings.   

While the game is pretty playable at low settings with the R9 Fury X and GTX 980Ti, the game is always played best at a steady and high framerate, leaving us recommending that you either turn down your game resolution for a more stable playing experience.    

Here we can see that Nvidia has the clear performance lead in Dark Souls 3, with the Nvidia GTX 980Ti having much higher minimum and average framerates, maintaining an average of 30FPS or above at all times.

Wonder if they improved CPU usage if it would help the AMD cards. Since the drivers tend to have more CPU overhead than Nvidia, which can result in slowdowns as we see here.Quote

It crashes a lot and nvidia recent drivers don't help at all.

However, it's probably THE best Souls game ever created.Quote

Had loads of crashing issues on AMD drivers too, however turning lighting to low fixed all the issues.

It is the best souls game so far.Quote
