DOOM Closed Alpha Requirements announced

 

The minimum and recommended requirements for DOOM's closed alpha have been released, comparing a GTX 780 to a R9 280 in the recommended 1080p requirements.  

 

 

Below are the minimum and recommended requirements for DOOM's closed alpha, which will require 8GB of RAM and 3GB of VRAM at 1080p. On the CPU side the devs recommend either an Intel i5 CPU at 3.3GHz or above or on the AMD side a FX 8350 8-core CPU, with the Intel CPU being bumped up to an i7 for the recommended requirements. 

For 1080p the developers recommend either a R9 280 or a GTX 780 GPU, which are GPUs that have a great difference in relative GPU power in most situations. It is assumes that these two GPUs have been chosen due to their built-in VRAM, rather than their prerformance. Remember that this is still an Alpha build. 

 

     The Closed Alpha is designed to test a variety of PC configurations. The following system specs for the PC are subject to change and do not reflect the minimum or recommended system specs of the final product.

  

Minimum Spec (720p)

  • 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8.1
  • Intel Core i5 @ 3.3 GHz or better / AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or better
  • 8 GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (2GB VRAM) / AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB VRAM)
  • 6GB HDD space
  • Steam account
  • High speed internet connection

 

Recommended Spec (1080p)

  • 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8.1
  • Intel Core i7 @ 3.4GHz or better / AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0GHz or better
  • 8GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 (3GB or more VRAM) / AMD Radeon R9 280 (3GB or more VRAM)
  • 6GB HDD space
  • Steam account
  • High speed internet connection

 

Please remember that these requirements are for the alpha of the game, so expect these requirements to decrease before the game's official release in Spring 2016.

Yeah I've noticed that too, do you think its more to do with the generally higher stock clock of the i7's or the extra Threads?Quote

Its weird seeing the 780 compared to the 280. Its often the other way around, something like a 670 compared to a 290..Quote
