Lords of the Fallen is set to launch in the next 12 hours, the second Souls-Like game in recent times, after Lies of P. NVIDIA has already released the GameReady driver for Fallen, Horizon Motorsport, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Consequently, we get a rough idea of how the game performs on modern GPUs. Luckily for NVIDIA users, Lords of the Fallen will release with DLSS 3 in tow, “multiplying frame rates,” as officials put it.
At native 4K (Ultra Settings), the GeForce RTX 4080 averages just 50 FPS, while the RTX 4090 manages a more respectable 69 FPS. Considering that this is a Souls-like game, these numbers are slightly underwhelming. DLSS 3 “Performance” mode buoys the frame rates to 139 FPS and 159 FPS on the RTX 4080 and 4090, respectively. Even the RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti offer smooth playtime with Frame Generation enabled.
1440p native is drastically less taxing, as the RTX 4080 averages 97 FPS, and the RTX 4090 blazes past 125 FPS. The RTX 4070 averages 49.7 FPS, while the RTX 4070 Ti posts 67 FPS. With DLSS 3 “Quality” mode enabled, the RTX 4090 averages 259.6 FPS, followed by the RTX 4080 with 193.6 FPS. The RTX 4070 Ti nets 154.7 FPS average, while the RTX 4070 manages an average of 116 FPS. The RTX 4060 barely falls short of the 100 FPS.
At 1080p, you are more likely to run into a CPU bottleneck. Luckily, frame generation takes care of that as well. The RTX 4060 averages 62.7 FPS at native and 140.6 FPS with DLSS 3 “Quality” Mode. The RTX 4070 records an average of 79 FPS at native and 170 FPS with FG. The RTX 4070 Ti manages 102.7 FPS on average and 218 FPS with DLSS 3. As for the top-tier cards, they render as many as 300 FPS with DLSS 3 at 1080p.
