DOOM Eternal Graphics Benchmark

2 Mins read

According to TweakTown, DOOM Eternal has managed to sell 3 million digital copies since its release in March 2020. This is three times more than the number of copies Doom (2016) managed to sell in the same time period. The game not only doubled Bethesda’s revenue, but it also managed to claim the second spot on the list of top 10 PC games in 2020.

And it did that for a good reason. If you read our review about DOOM Eternal then you’ve figured out how this game turned out to be a great first-person shooter with super-intense gameplay. Putting heavy emphasis on singleplayer experience and content quality, DOOM Eternal brought us hope that there are still games which are not plagued with pesky microtransactions and tons of bugs.

DOOM Eternal is faster, harder, and overall just better variant of 2016’s DOOM. Killing hordes of demons is now a bit tougher job, however, much more exciting. The game’s extremely intense combat will quickly deplete your survival cognitive skills, but the overall feeling of satisfaction after accomplishing your objectives will feel unremarkable. Besides being a great first-person shooter and having awesome gameplay mechanics, DOOM Eternal is an amazingly well-coded and optimized game which will run smoothly on most systems. Here are the official game’s system requirements.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 3.3 GHz or better, or AMD Ryzen 3 @ 3.1 GHz or better
  • RAM: 8GB DDR3
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or AMD Radeon R9 290
  • Storage: 50 GB of free hard drive space
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 / 64-bit Windows 10

Recommended System Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K or better, or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X or better
  • RAM: 8GB DDR3
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 480
  • Storage: 50 GB of free hard drive space
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 / 64-bit Windows 10

Here at ViCadia, we have conducted performance benchmark test (watch our video) of DOOM Eternal on our default PC testing rig comprising of Intel Core i7-4770 processor and AMD’s Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics card. The game ran surprisingly smoothly on our system with all graphical settings set to “Ultra Nightmare” at 1080p resolution. Frame rates never fell below 60 FPS mark, and averaged in between 70 and 100 frames per second.

Taking into consideration how the game ran smoothly on our system, we can safely concluded that DOOM Eternal is extremely well-optimized AAA title, and will perform greatly on most mainstream PC systems. If you own AMD’s Radeon RX 580 graphics card (or any other Tier 4 equivalent graphics card), you can set all of your graphical settings to maximum without hesitation, as the game will perform very well. If you plan to play the game on 1440p resolution, or would like to achieve stable 144 FPS, then buying either GTX 1660 Ti or GTX 2060 would be a great option.
