4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

 

In a lot of areas in Dark Souls 3, particularly those without any water or puddles, has very little visual difference when moving from Low to Max settings. For many players, it will simply not be worth moving past the games medium settings, especially given the performance impact of higher settings.

This final set of screenshots we can see the differences in shadow quality when moving up the graphical settings, where we can see that the player has no shadow at low and when moving above medium the shadows become more defined/detailed.

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
