For quite some time, 2016’s DOOM served as a benchmark game to test PC hardware. If your PC was able to run DOOM at the highest possible settings, you were set. Will 2020’s DOOM Eternal offer the same sort of PC benchmark test? Yes, absolutely.

If you meet the minimum or recommended specs, you’ll be running DOOM Eternal at its lowest setting at 1080p and 60Hz. Not bad, right? If you hit the max Ultra-Nightmare spec tier, you can go all the way up to 1140p at 120Hz or 2160p at 60Hz.

As you probably guessed, DOOM Eternal is a hefty game and requires an equally hefty PC to handle it even on its lowest possible settings. To help you compare your PC specs to DOOM Eternal’s minimum and recommended specs to see if you’re good to go, or if you need to upgrade, we’ve included all of the requirements below.
