DOOM Eternal PC Specs Announced

DOOM Eternal‘s PC minimum and recommended specs have been announced! There are plenty of options for playing DOOM Eternal, but there’s a certain attractiveness to playing with a mouse and keyboard. However, whenever a game like DOOM Eternal comes out, there’s always the age-old question: can my PC run it? And here’s the answer!


Minimum Requirements (1080p, 60 FPS, low graphical settings):

  • 64-bit processor and OS
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7/10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 3.3 GHz/AMD Ryzen 3 @ 3.1 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB), GTX 1060 (6GB), GTX 1650 (4GB), AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB)/RX 470 (4GB)
  • Storage: 50 GB of free drive space

Recommended Requirements (1440p, 60 FPS, high graphical settings):

  • 64-bit processor and OS
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K/AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (8GB), RTX 2060 (8GB), AMD Radeon RX Vega56 (8GB)
  • Storage: 50 GB of free drive space


Bethesda’s DOOM (2016) will certainly push your PC to some limits, but DOOM Eternal reaches new levels that we may have never seen from the gaming industry before. Shadow of the Tomb Raider serves as one of the best comparisons, however. The most demanding gaming experiences for your PC will vary depending on which website you look at, but Shadow of the Tomb Raider is consistently in the top five or ten on just about any list. DOOM Eternal blows those specs out of the water. In fact, the recommended GPU for Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the minimum GPU requirement for DOOM Eternal.

One thing that really pops out to me is the recommended 16 GB of RAM. Seriously? Comparatively speaking, RAM isn’t too expensive, but this is still a major requirement to put on your system no matter how inexpensive it is.


For those of you who don’t speak computer, all of these numbers simply mean it’s going to be a bitch and a half to run, and to get an experience better than you’ll get on any console on the market, you may be looking at thousands of dollars in upgrades if your PC isn’t already up to snuff.


For those of you who can’t run the PC version of this beautiful, monstrosity of a game, don’t fret! The game releases on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 alongside Steam and on March 20, 2020.
