Dark Souls 3 PC Performance Review

1440p Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti

At 1440p we see very similar results to 1080p, with Dark Souls 3's performance being mostly limited by the game itself. Only at max settings do we see notable dips below 60FPS, which even then always maintains a framerate that is always above 50FPS.   

With the lack of any major visual improvements when moving above medium I would advise most gamers to just play the game at medium, which will allow you to experience the game with no real performance dips when using the GTX 980Ti or R9 Fury X.

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
