id Software releases, then redacts, DOOM Eternal's PC system requirements

DOOM Eternal's PC system requirements have been released. Well... they were released... Now, they have been removed from the internet, but thankfully The FPS Review was quick to document these system requirements.

For starters, like most new Vulkan-based games from Bethesda, 4GB of VRAM is a necessity, much like the releases of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. 

CPU-wise, a strong quad-core from AMD's Ryzen 3 series and Intel i5 series is recommended alongside 8GB of system memory, alongside a graphics card like AMD's RX 470 or R9 290 and Nvidia's GTX 1650, GTX 1060 or GTX 970. These requirements are designed for 1080p 60FPS gameplay. 

For 1440p 60FPS gameplay at high settings, higher-end graphics cards like AMD's RX Vega 56, and Nvidia's GTX 1080 are recommended. 16GB of system memory is recommended, as is 8GB of VRAM. 

DOOM Eternal is said to need 50GB of storage space and run best on high-end processors like Intel's i7-6700K or AMD's Ryzen 7 1800X or better.  

Why were these system requirements removed? Our guess is that id Software wanted to be clearer about their game's hardware requirements. Ryzen 3 and Intel i5 are vague terms, and Nvidia's RTX 2060 isn't an 8GB graphics card. It is likely that these system requirements will be re-released with clearer guidelines over the coming days.

Just from the screenshot alone, it doesnt look very intensive. No wonder they can boast 1000fps.Quote

I can't see it being any harder to run than the first one tbh. I doubt the engine has changed much, if at all.Quote

It's a new engine, some major rewrites of key parts of the code, around x10 the geometric detail, completely new texture pipeline, new particle system, ect, but the improvements to performance should mean it still runs better/as well as idTech6.Quote

regardless of the engine. Quality wise based on the screenshots makes me think the graphics do not appear that intensive.

That said.. we know Destiny2 is an incredibly well optimised game that pushes high fps on the avg machine.Quote
