Updated Retail Specs

There have also been some adjustments made to the minimum and recommended specs that are listed on the packaging of DOOM Eternal physical PC copies. Those changes are listed below:

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 19.1.1 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

Definitely a big jump from the last game. Of course, if you already have a PC that is far beyond those specs then you won’t have much to worry about, and in fact may benefit from the many options that the game will set to offer, including some extremely high frame-rates.
