DOOM Eternal is just 10 days away from launch and while its developer, id Software, has made claims of it being able to reach the 1000 fps mark, we’re still in the dark about the game’s official system requirements. That is, until now.
Both the game’s “official” minimum and recommended hardware requirement were initially discovered by GamesRadar+ on its official Steam page. Before being removed without any form of notice. In its place, all you see if the sentence “Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system”.
Moving on, the game’s minimum and recommended requirements are as listed below:
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 10
- CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 3.3GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 @ 3.1GHz
- RAM: 8GB
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB), GTX 1060 (6GB), GTX 1650 (4GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB), Radeon RX 470 (4GB)
- OS: 64-bit Windows 10
- CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
- RAM: 16GB
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (8GB), GeForce RTX 2060 (8GB) or AMD Radeon RX Vega56 (8GB)
At a glance, the minimum requirements match up to the recommended requirements of the 2016 reboot of DOOM, which also required an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 for it to run smoothly at 1440p. For DOOM Eternal, these setting will reportedly run the game on Low Setting at Full HD, and at 60 fps.
The highlight here is, of course, the game’s recommended hardware. Bare minimum, your rig will need a GeForce GTX 1080 or an AMD Radeon RX Vega56. Just so you can enjoy the game at both 1440p and with its graphics set to high. Additional hardware includes 16GB RAM, and a choice between an Intel Core i7-6700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X.
It’s one of the few titles we’ve seen that has a graphics requirement of a GTX 1080 on its recommended settings, to date. Of course, if your PC already ticks off the recommended criteria, you can just scale down your display’s resolution to Full HD for a smoother experience when the game comes out.
On that note and as a reminder, DOOM Eternal is set to be available on 13 March. The game will be available on both the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam for PC.
