15 Cool Features In The Upcoming DOOM

Bethesda’s much anticipated title DOOM will finally launch this May but before that we got our hands on the beta versions of PS4, Xbox One and PC builds. Running on id Tech 6, the developers have set some hefty goals for the console versions. The game targets a full 1080p and 60 fps standard on the PS4 and Xbox One. So does it manage to achieve that?

Before we jump into analyzing all three versions, there are a couple of things that needs to be mentioned. First of all, this is a beta so what we mention here may not apply to the retail version. Things can always change in the final version but analyzing pre-release builds helps all of us understand how things are moving forward development wise. Secondly, we will only be taking a brief look at all three platforms so this isn’t going to be a fully fledged performance analysis like we usually do. So without further ado, let us jump right in.

The PlayStation 4 version runs at a dynamic resolution of 1600 X 1080 to 1920 X 1080. The Xbox One version uses a dynamic resolution which varies between 1350 X 1080 to 1920 X 1080p resolution. As far as performance goes, it’s the PS4 version that manages to hold a stable 60fps most of the times. This is not to say that it does not drop. It definitely drops but compared to the Xbox One, it’s far more stable. Both versions also suffer from screen tearing when the game’s engine runs out of resources in order to render a consist 60 fps. Furthermore, the trademark id Tech texture streaming issue has returned. Although it isn’t as bad as RAGE, it can definitely be noticed on the console versions. Surprisingly, the console versions also have a few graphical parameters that you can tweak. These include chromatic aberration and motion blur.

Switching over to the PC version, the developers recommend an Intel Core i7-3770 / AMD FX-8350 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB) / AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB) along with 8GB of memory. We tested the game on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 ti along with an Intel Core i7-3770 and had next to no issues running the game at a locked 60 frames per second. Obviously, we are using a high end card for this analysis so expect more benchmarks when our full analysis goes live next month.

At this point we are slightly worried about the Xbox One version, especially with regards to the single player. Will DOOM run at 1080p and 60fps in the single player, a mode which will have far more complexities? We will have to wait and see. The developers may trade-off between resolution and fps targets just like what Naughty Dog did with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’s single-player and multiplayer components. We will be back with the full analysis of all three versions when the game launches next month.

    Im using an gtx 970 and an fx8350, solid 60 fps so far. Wondering how the final release will look.

  • Generalkidd

    It’s still pretty sad that neither console have 1st party exclusives that can run at perfect 1080p 60fps. Uncharted 4 couldn’t do it, Halo 5 couldn’t do it. What a shame. Regardless, it doesn’t bother me too much since the games are still great and I honestly would not have noticed the resolution difference if I didn’t look it up. It’s not like people stop mid game and look closely at the screen to count the pixels.

    • One With Shadows

      Racing games with static backgrounds don’t count.

      1. You can’t name one graphically intensive game like Uncharted 4 and then make a broad sweeping statement like that. Certainly it’s an issue with the Xbox one. 2. As for noticing resolution, if you own a large tv, you don’t have to look closely at all before it’s downright annoying. Smaller screens will have shrunken pixels so the difference isn’t as noticeable. The x1 has issues which will always make it lag well behind. If you’re one of the relatively few using a projector, the Xbox one resolutions will make you pull your hair out because it becomes highly pixelated. 1080 holds its own. …unless you get silly with the screen size and then even 1080 is frustrating. The Xbox 2 (360) had 1080 more often. It’s not that these systems can’t do 1080 (they can both do 4k actually), but newer games are much busier and require more power. Power that has to come from somewhere. MS doesn’t have it, so compromises are made in resolution and frame rate. Launched at $500…insane. and I love how they claimed the web cam cost an even 100 bucks to manufacture. Sure it did. Microsoft have a long reputation for gouging the customer while selling inferior products. Sony spent an extra billion to put out ram that’s 3 times as fast. Sony spent a good deal more on a video card that’s 50% faster. And on and on. Yet launched at $400 with a vastly superior machine. Graphics and power aren’t everything (though they are a firm argument when so many games are the same), and truly I love Nintendo too, but MS simply don’t care about their fan base beyond how much they can gouge them for. The original intent of the always on web cam was that it could identify products in your playing area and give you ads that would apply to you! ADS!!! Needless to say they peddled backwards quickly when they couldn’t even get away with the always on part and a host of other complaints from their fans. It seems those still hanging on to MS don’t quite get what that company is like and just fall in for the marketing. Or a game like halo which was great all the way until halo reach. But now it’s like a band you like with the same name but all new members. Halo is dead as far as I’m concerned since bunjie no longer make it. Everyone should get whatever system they want, but graphics comparisons between ps4 and x1 are silly. The outcome has the same winner each and every single time and if it didnt…someone would have to purposely dumb down the ps4.

    • PS4 and X1

      Waaaaay to long dude lol.

      The PS4 is great, but in no way do I need to continue to defend it, or write an extremely long and out-winded paragraph.

      No 360 games ran at 1080p. Ever. Period.

      When a game says it outputs at 1080p on the 360, it means it scales to 1080p, not that it’s rendered natively at 1080p.

      The vast majority of games on both last-gen platforms (PS3 and 360) are rendered natively at 720p (or lower, some were native 480p) and then upscaled to 1080p. Don’t trust what it says on the back of the box.

      Uncharted is my favorite series by far, can’t wait for U4.

    • Bogle

      1. I wasn’t responding to the article, I was responding to someone else so that would be the only person who could state my response was too long. Thanks though honey for your completely random step between two others. “Out-winded” is grammatically illegal and I hope you feel a deep shame for it. It’s long winded. Also, it’s spelled, “too.” Your comment of upscaling on the previous generation however is interesting to me and i appreciate the info. Have a nice day. 🙂

    • PS4 and X1

      Dude, you need a wife, girlfriend, or other friends.

      Nobody corrects grammar on the Internet, let alone say “outwinded is grammatically illegal” (continue reading, and you’ll find out it is not grammatically illegal you pretentious ***).

      Oh, and I typed fast and typed “to” instead of “too”. Wow! You have issues!

      I feel sorry for you. You probably don’t get laid often, always correcting someones grammar or proper English techniques (I left out the apostrophe, does that bother you?).

      FYI since you care:

      OUTWINDED – 1 DEFINITION

      – verb

      1. outwinded — cause to be out of breath.

      To put out of breath “An outwinded runner”

      Take care and good luck.

    • Bogle

      …you have no sense of humor at all and are way too easily offended. …and ironically posted a grammar correction to my joke which is adorable. If it helps you to think of me as single, you go ahead champ;). Given that you copied and pasted something to a zillion people here, I think we can safely assess your own social success ;). Have a nice day pumpkin. Write your angry response below. I’ll never see it but find a way to feel u got me :). Good luck with girls honey.

    • PS4 and X1

      Um, you are just backtracking your bullshit. You are the only one taking offense because your comments are so outwinded.

      It’s a verb. Get over it.

      These are your exact words that you are forgetting:

      “1. You can’t name one graphically intensive game like Uncharted 4 and then make a broad sweeping statement like that. Certainly it’s an issue with the Xbox one. 2.

      You are the Internet troll of the day.

      Congratulations.

    • PS4 and X1

      You are most definitely single and have no friends in real life.

  • crizz1066

    Yet again the ugly ‘ol Vcr is in last place. Hopefully when m$ release the new x1. 5,it’ll be finally be able to reach 1080p 30fps regularly. Still if you want a nasty big machine that uses loads of electricity to watch TV. Then the x1 is for you.

    • JC

      I guess if you think it’s too big you should move out of your parent’s place so you can have your own living room with enough space for things? And electricity is cheap….

    • crizz1066

      ‘electricity is cheap’ brilliant. Somes up the waste I dislike with the x1& a lot of those left on gimped vcr.

    • PS4 and X1

      Here are some facts:

      PS4 = 90-150 Watts

      Xbox One = 70-120 Watts

      The PS4 actually uses MORE power than the Xbone ….

    • crizz1066

      Not when it’s switched off! Obviously it uses more when running it’s the more powerful machine. I’m getting at the whole follow through, needing it on when watch movies etc. Then it’s wasting electricity.

    • PS4 and X1

      You are just a lost fanboy with idiot remarks.

      The PS4 still uses more power when watching movies, Netflix, etc. It’s not wasting electricity if someone is using it.

      Blu-ray players can use over 50 watts.

      Cable TV boxes and DVR’s are the 2nd biggest energy users in many homes, most of which are over 500 watts.

      Then there’s surround sound audio systems which can be over 1,000 watts of power consumption.

      You make such a huge deal the Xbox uses more power but are 100% wrong, then try to flip-flop your answer.

      Idiot fanboys.

    • crizz1066

      Or you use something like chrome cast for fraction of electricity, idiot fan boy!

    • PS4 and X1

      Wasn’t talking about chrome cast. Wasn’t even in the discussion.

      The discussion was the PS4 uses more electricity than the Xbone.

      You insisted that the Xbone uses more electricity than the PS4.

      That was the discussion. You are the trolling fanboy who was proven wrong, then tried to flip it around, then flip it again to other bullshit.

      $ony doesn’t care about you. If you like $ony more than others, you have an issue. It’s called fanboy-ism. You choose 1 company, $ony, then bash M$ online, and it makes you feel better = THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING ON ALL YOUR COMMENTS.

      $ony is just as bad, if not worse than M$. $ony is using fanboys to make it look like they are innocent.

      In 2011, $ony had an “external intursion”, also known as being hacked, in which over 77 MILLION accounts were stolen, including names, addresses, and credit card numbers.

      $ony is worse than M$ you fool. It’s obvious you are new to being a $ony fan, or you would know this. M$ has never, ever, ever had 77 million accounts stolen like $ony did.

      You are not even a gamer. You bash M$, but you are using a PC, running Microsoft Windows Operating System. Nobody but Graphic Artists and Developers use MAC OS.

      Keep feeding yourself bullshit.

      You are simply a bandwagon fan. You played 360 last gen because it was #1, now the PS4 is #1 so you choose that.

      You are a joke.

    • crizz1066

      Wow war n peace again. As I’ve said before there really is no reason for the x1, all its games will be available ON PC whether they admit it. Then if you have the chrome cast at a fraction of the cost in both £ & electricity, it will do all the TV stuff the x1 does.
      Then for quality gaming you have the ps4 n hopefully what Nintendo cone up with soon.
      BTW never had an Xbox, still remember the embassed look when I asked my mate if his washing machine was running and it turned out to be the Xbox.

    • PS4 and X1

      So you use a Microsoft Windows Operating System, but refuse to use a Microsoft Xbox = Says all Sony Pony Only Fans

    • crizz1066

      Yeah cuz there’s no other option when it comes to OS. Run along fool!!!

    • PS4 and X1

      You most definitely are not using MAC OS or Linux, that is for sure.

    • crizz1066

      LOl really, there’s not the possibility of 1 person doing this, you know everything do you!!!! Delusions of knowing all yet again from a xbox acolyte.

    • PS4 and X1

      Love my PS4 and the Uncharted series has always been my favorite.

      Eat that you inbred douche.

      You are the delusion.

      You are the fanboy saying F Microsoft but you are using a Microsoft Windows PC.

      You ARE using a Windows PC, you have commented the same fanboy bullshit before saying F Microsoft … Sony is #1 … and yet you are using a Microsoft Operating System.

      F*ing moron.

    • crizz1066

      Where’s all this anger coming from?

      Whats gone so wrong in your life, you feel the need to be so angry?

    • PS4 and X1

      Because I’ve read your numerous replies.

      You are nothing more than an Internet troll scouring the web for comments with the deliberate attempt of provoking people.

      I provide facts and info about power usage, since your original post was about how the Xbox One uses more power … but in Fact the PS4 actually does …. so then you went on an OFF-TOPIC discussion about some other crap = that is trolling.

      You are nothing more than an Internet Keyboard Warrior trolling around on the Internet that whenever anybody proves you are wrong, you just back away onto another off-topic discussion.

      Re-read your posts you fool.

    • crizz1066

      Lol you come back 2 months later, with this drivel fueled rant. Swearing at me an accusing me of all sorts. And I’m the troll.
      Get over yourself.
      Next time you wish to feel superior and pick apart somes comments, it’s best to do it at the time, not moths later when people have forgot. Also try not to swear and get so worked up. You cone across as a rabid fool looking for a fight.

    • PS4 and X1

      Was away with friends and family. Unlike you, I have a life.

      Went to Europe visited some friends, even went to Moscow for the first time in my life.

      What in the world have you even done in the past 2 months?

      You got denied time and again about your posts.

      Get over it. I proved you wrong time and time again, even 2 months later.

      Scroll up, read what you wrote you ignorant fool.

    • crizz1066

      Ahh the 1st thing you did after getting back off hols with Mummy and Daddy was come back to try and attack me.

      That gives me a lovely warm feeling. Must have been gnawing away at you all that time away.

      You believe what you want about proving me wrong.

      Thanks for letting me know I’m right, you wouldnt have come back otherwise 😉

    • PS4 and X1

      Nope went with my wife and kids, got back weeks ago. But nice try.

      You are a grown adult who lives with his mother and father.

      You still can’t prove any points you were trying to make.

      You are a waste of life.

    • PS4 and X1

      Those who truly use MAC OS and Linux would never respond or even care to comment like you have.

    • Randy Abern

      I see no difference graphically, and it still is in beta form.

    • crizz1066

      Others do!

    • Randy Abern

      Others are irrelevant, I don’t.

    • crizz1066

      If others are irrelevant, why make comments to “others” seems a complete waste of time! Its why M$ have decided to start telling stories of the new promised Scorpio. Even they could see the difference.

    • Lex Luger

      There won’t be an xbox 1.5 as Phil Spencer already made this publicly known so whatever and honestly the Xbox One isn’t the most powerful system but people need to realize it’s 300 bucks honestly we can’t expect much more than what’s currently being offered and honestly it’s not all that bad in fact some 3rd party games run a little better on Xbox One than the ps4 counterpart but regardless guys I’ve had a first hand look at the NINTENDO NX DEV KIT and it’s an absolute powerhouse which is gonna offer i7 / nvidia gtx 970 level performance so none of us will have to worry about these current generation console junk for much longer as the NINTENDO NX

    • crizz1066

      It’ll be good to see Nintendo with a decent power house, really enjoy how they do some of their games. As for what Phil says, he flip flops n changes message you never know what their gonna do lol

    • PS4 and X1

      Here are some facts:

      PS4 = 90-150 Watts

      Xbox One = 70-120 Watts

      The PS4 actually uses MORE power than the Xbone ….
