DOOM PC Performance Review

1080p Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti

 

One thing to note before we start is that DOOM runs on a different version of the Khronos Group's OpenGL API, with AMD GPUs running on OpenGL version 4.3 and Nvidia running on the newer version 4.3. This means that comparing AMD and Nvidia GPUs in this game isn't a true apples-to-apples comparison

The game will be patched to support the new Khronos Group's new Vulkan API, so hopefully we will be able to give this game a truer comparison when that version of the game releases.

We can see here that at 1080p AMD's R9 Fury X runs notably slower than the GTX 980Ti, especially when we crank the game up to ultra graphical settings. 

Nightmare graphical settings are only available to those with 6+GB of VRAM, so AMD's R9 Fury X was incapable of running the game at those settings.  

Again these issues could be down to AMD being forced to run the game on OpenGL 4.3 while Nvidia can use OpenGL 4.5. Hopefully, the games upcoming Vulkan Patch will allow both GPU vendors to run the game equally well.

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
