What are the Doom Eternal PC requirements?

The Doom Eternal Machine specifications are, as you would expect from I d Software, very detailed and comprehensive.

We here at Thumbsticks like to publish device specifications. Stories will meet three requirements in our editorial guide-is it verifiable? Is it worth it? Is this very useful for readers? –And usually the device specifications satisfy all three. Well, you might argue the point of “value,” but if you like Computer hardware, it’s certainly interesting.

The problem with program specifications is they aren’t always that comprehensive. They will definitely tell you what the “minimum” criteria are, but they do not tell you what to expect. Is that the minimum needed at high settings for 1080p? Or is that a de-textured potato in 640x 480 is the minimum needed to barely even play the game at all?

Because then there is Application for the Id. The business has been at the forefront of video game technology for over 30 years. Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake–the early days of 3D gaming were developed and influenced by Id. Just as you would imagine, I d Software’s device specifications announcement–for Doom Eternal in this case–was comprehensive and incredibly detailed.

But there’s more!

Since Doom Eternal is having a packaged PC release–but unfortunately not a large box like the early 90s–and launches in just 10 days, the box art has already been printed for the retail PC edition. And with the final rounds of testing and refining in the run-in to the release of the game, after the retail PC version was released, this has led to several improvements.

Updated Minimum Spec (from what is printed on the PC box)

  • Removed Windows 8.1 as a supported operating system because it is no longer supported by AMD as of their most recent driver release.
  • Win 8.1 users with AMD GPUs will need to use driver version 19.10.1 to run the game successfully.
  • We’ve increased the resolution from 720p/60 FPS at Low Quality settings to 1080p/60 FPS at Low quality settings and have added in support for some 3GB and additional 4GB GPUs.
  • Added current-gen Nvidia GPUs that also meet the min spec performance requirements.

Updated Recommended Spec (from what is printed on the PC box)

  • We’ve increased the resolution from 1080p/60 FPS at High Quality settings to 1440p at High quality settings and have added in support for some additional GPUs at 1080p/60 FPS.
  • We’ve also reduced the system RAM requirements from 16GB to 8GB.
  • In order to hit higher performance targets, we removed the Ryzen 5 CPU and added specific i7 and Ryzen 7 CPU model numbers.
  • Recommended Specs listed on the PC box will still work as advertised
  • Added current-gen Nvidia GPUs that also meet the recommended spec performance requirements.

Added Ultra-Nightmare Spec

  • We added a “maxed-out” spec for PC users
