DOOM PC Performance Review

Graphical Options 

 

When looking at DOOM's graphical options menu we can see that iD Software has done everything right, with a wide range of user selectable resolutions, aspect ratios, Anti-Aliasing options, Field of View (FOV) options and even a dedicated colourblind mode.  

Moving into the games advanced graphical options menu we can see that pretty much everything that you would expect from a modern PC game is here and more, truly bringing DOOM's graphical options into the modern age.  

There are four pre-defined graphical options in the game, low, medium, high and ultra, though higher options are available if you customise them yourself. The game also included a dedicated "performance metrics" options that will give the player their framerate date and other relevant performance data for the game.

Nightmare Settings

Above the games Ultra graphical settings Nightmare graphical settings are available, though these graphical options are only available to those that own graphics cards that have 5GB or more VRAM, which currently limits these options only to those with Titan series GPUs, GTX 980Ti GPUs or R9 390 series GPUs. 

 

Tested settings

When testing the game we have used the graphical settings below, testing the games built in Low, Medium, high and ultra graphical presets alongside the game when it is maxed out with Nightmare quality settings. 

When on low settings we have decided to play the game with no AA, while at medium and high we used SMAA. At Ultra settings we use the SMAA (1TX) option and at Nightmare we used the TSSAA (8TX) AA option.

Cheers man. I look forward to giving this a spin again when Vulkan support is implemented.

For now, more DOOM. SP is great.Quote

Scott, GET THIS GAME. I've spent the weekend playing it and just finished the campaign. Utterly superb Best game soundtrack of the year by a country mile. it's SO METAL!!!

Properly enjoyed it. Will be going back through on the harder difficulties as well. Much fun.

Had a quick nose at the snap map editor thing..:O wow.. very, very good. Very intuitive. I reckon if it takes off like Mario Maker did on the WiiU.. they'll be onto a big winner with that. Excellently well made.

If you don't have this game, go and pick up a copy off cdkeys.com and enjoy it's simply a brilliant, old school fast, fearless and utterly unforgiving FPS.. with spanky new graphics and a luxuriously well optimised engine. I take back what I said before if it was bad, it supasses what UE4 can do now. idTech are on to a winner here, the performance is just astounding.Quote
