Do You Want Specs?
HEXUS have posted the minimum and recommended specifications for playing DOOM Eternal and from the looks of it the id Tech 7 engine can do a lot with even modest hardware. If you are aiming for 60fps at 1440p you will need either a Core i7-6700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X at the minimum, paired with 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1080, RTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX Vega56. We don’t have the specs for the ray traced version as of yet, it won’t arrive until after the launch and will likely prefer a bit more power. The install will be a mere 50GB; my how times have changed.
If you want a sneak peek, Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN have posted the launch trailer for you to enjoy and both sites have a short look at how the slaying music you will be enjoying was made. If you were intending to play it on Stadia, you will still be able to as it has not been pulled from the service, however you won’t be playing in proper 4k as was originally suggested.
Remember, friends don’t let friends pre-order!
As you can see above the minimum specs for 1080p / 60fps are quite light for a new AAA game. This is surely be thanks to the extensive optimisation in the id Tech 7 engine. For example, according to the table, you should get 60fps on a system packing a modest 8GB of RAM, with any gen Intel Core i5 CPU, and a card as old (2014) as the GeForce GTX 970, as long as you stick to the low preset.
