DOOM Eternal PC Graphics Benchmark

I literally just did that, 20+ runs even dropping my base frequency to 1600mhz, I could *not* get an average result as low as your 5700 & I was only able to get it to match your XT result by literally staring at a section that dropped the fps to 112 for a good 5-10s of the 1min run.

I even tried shortening the run to avoid staring at high fps scenery for too long because apart from one section(after the broken wall staring at the ship before dropping down), the rest of the scene runs at ~150-160fps+.

So here are my results, & for a good portion of it I was purposely trying to stare at low fps sections to drop the average down on purpose along with dropping my RX 5700 frequency from boost of around 1700mhz down to 1600mhz base.

Ultra preset 1080p, RS-off::
Great thanks for the info, I'm looking into it right now. What tool are you using to capture that information?

No worries,, just MSI afterburner//rivatuner, the OSD wont show up during gameplay(only loading screens) but the benchmark tool itself seems to work accurately as I can sit at the ingame menu and record a benchmark at ~500fps etc. The average & minimums also seem to drop accordingly when I'd stare at intensive portions of the area you were testing in, particularly staring at the ship just after breaking the wall gets around 112fps, but it was the only area I could stare at to try and artificially drop the average frame rate down under 150fps.

Well, maybe I can crack 10 fps with my Radeon HD 5570, anyone got something similar? This is not a troll comment, I seriously use a 5570 in my rig, its all I have.

It looks aged even on highest settings. Sorry. It was made with consoles in mind and looks the part.



That's TechSpot testing for you. It works as it should on other website reviews. I don't want to name them, but look anywhere else for proper benchmarks. Sorry TS, but you have some problems with your test rig(s) or methods, idk. But Everyone is not wrong and you are the only one that is right. It doesn't work that way.
What are you apologizing for? You're free to have your opinion.

Try the first Doom, shouldn't be that bad.

Here's a fresh vid showing my radeon & game settings with some more benchmark runs at 1080p ultra,,, I didnt stick to a strict 1min timer as the FPS just shoots up as soon as I jump down the cliff.
- Uploaded in 1080 & the length is probably longer than necessary so it's still processing with YT,, I rambled on with testing a bit too much about the high/low fps points for that section of the game but hopefully its useful.

I reckon something is up with the driver installation or settings as it's the most sensible answer I can come up with unless you spot something really wrong I had set.

"That's TechSpot testing for you", it's our fault the RTX 2060 has a 6GB VRAM buffer and the GTX 1070 an 8GB buffer which serves it better at higher resolutions?

I've double checked all the numbers, the only errors I found impacted the RX 5700 result at 1080p, it was about 10% lower than it should have been. Also we must have encountered a bug with the 5500 XT as the 8GB model is now on par with the 580. But the rest of the results are accurate, despite being different to what others are reporting using the Ultra Nightmare setting. I will re-test soon using the max preset to see if it favors AMD more when compared to Ultra, but given the preset testing we've done so far, it shouldn't.
First of all, thank you for taking the time to reply to all the posts, including mine. I meant no personal offense towards you or anyone.

Second, I just compared your results for 1070, 1070ti and 2060 because the poster I was replying to had some legit questions. I haven't even noticed that you used "Ultra" and not "Ultra Nightmare", which makes this (results you got) even more confusing: TechPowerup for instance is getting higher or same FPS for those cards (I don't know about overall, it's too much data for me to check against), and they are using Ultra Nightmare. Like I said I don't know what are setting for you bench PC but you should look into it because, again, like I said,everyone else got same or better results at Ultra Nightmare (Ultra is more like Medium/Low, it's blurry and ugly).
These things in your game reviews happen (almost?) every single review you do. You "always" get "less" than others do, but thankfully I don't really mind those since I come to TS for the news and updates more than I come for game reviews. :)
Cheers.

The game runs very well on my old Maxwell-era Titan X at 1440p with Ultra Night mode settings. My cards churn out a steady 60fps most likely due to their 12GB of VRAM.

Steve,

Would love to see the CPU comparisons return to these reviews. I know its been a while, makes me sad to not see them anymore :(

Maybe something “simple“ like top 10 most popular on steam paired with a 2080ti?

Only the 2080ti and 1080ti can run this game at 4K ultra nightmare as these settings require more than 8gb vram
My 1080ti easily runs the game at ultra nightmare and it looks incredible with hdr on my 65 inch tv which does over 1000 nits hdr.
I’ve never seen graphics of this clarity and colours of this quality before.
Incredible stuff.

Radeon VII says hello with 16gb HBM2. ;) And yes, despite the benchmarks here I assure you it is no problem to run it at 4k ultra nightmare.

Yea, only 1080Ti and 2080Ti....kids these days...

PS. game runs fine under 1080p with 3GB vram, and 1440p with 4/6GB vram...if card has more vram, it will use it to cache more things, that's nothing new.

As noted in the article...

Update: After publishing this benchmark feature we detected some bugs with the game and AMD Radeon drivers that affected results. We have updated all data/graphs to reflect those changes. While margins have not changed dramatically, for the sake of transparency and accuracy we conducted several more hours of tests and have updated all graphs accordingly. Kudos to @Steve for the amazing effort (again)

While true, you're not running on "Ultra" with less than 8GB VRAM.

DE will run on a ton of older cards with less VRAM. For instance I ran it on my old GTX670 4GB and with some things turned off it runs well at 1080p. I am amazed at how well optimized DE is!

What I listed above is on ultra nightmare. As you can see, it all runs contrary to your beliefs. :)
edit: as you can see, there is 2060 with 6GB ram running 4K @ultra nightmare and 1080 with 8GB isn't doing that much better despite having more ram.

Yeah, I have a 2060 6GB and 1060 6GB in my possession. Neither will run on Ultra. The option can't be selected in the menu. Not sure how Techspot was able to do it, but I'll bet it was either a glitch in an early version of the game, something that has not made it's way into the public eye yet or a(honest?) mistake by the person creating the benchmarks.

I honestly have no idea, and no way to test. I have rx580 8gb and 1070 8gb, sooo....Besides, I am running 1080p atm, so I can only speak with full confidence to that.

edit: they wont run on Ultra or Ultra Nightmare? Because Ultra is, to me, 2008 quality and would be akin to low/medium with textures on low in most other FPS games. Even on Ultra NM, texture work is far from stellar.

It could be they just have a lot of trouble swapping out that many test rigs. Tom's Hardware mentions that a little bit in their testing article (https://www.tomshardware.com/features/doom_eternal-graphics_cpu-performance-comparison), but they at least were able to test 5 CPUs each on the latest Intel & AMD platforms...& pretty much as long as you at least have a Pentium G5400 or equivalent (2C/4T, 3.7GHz Coffee Lake-S CPU from Intel), you will be more likely to be GPU-limited than CPU-limited with this title at 1080p or higher, even on Ultra (note that even at 4K the Pentium when paired with a 2080TI could get over 100FPS on Ultra).

Ok so, here is how to run ultra nightmare on 4GB and 6gb cards:

"
It’s basically the first setting on the graphics list which is the vram hog. If you turn that down to ultra you can run everything else at max.
The setting is called texture pool size in advanced video settings
"

OR

set whatever you want, press apply, get the error message and press "p" key to go to friends list and settings will be applied anyway.

The P trick does not actually work as Steve discovered in his latest video. Even though the setting say ultra Nightmare, Steve suspects that the textures are reduced to something like Nightmare. Steve confirmed this when fps went down as he reduce resolution.

So many tech sites were BS their findings, including TPU. That said, it wasn't very obvious as ultra, nightmare, and ultra nightmare are all very close together.
