DOOM is a science fiction horror first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is a reboot of the Doom series and is the first major instalment in the series since the release of Doom 3 in 2004 and the fourth title in the main series of games.
The game is played entirely from a first-person perspective, with players’ taking the role of an unnamed marine, as he battles demonic forces from Hell that have been unleashed by the Union Aerospace Corporation on a future-set colonised planet Mars.
We test using the ‘ultra’ preset. Given Doom does not have its own in-built benchmark, I tested at the beginning of the game as the player destroys the very first Gore Nest. I benchmarked 3 closely-matched runs and then took the average figures from those runs to present here.
Doom is a well-optimised title and both looks and runs beautifully across all 3 resolutions. At 4K the frame rate does dip down to a minimum of 31.3, but many would still consider this very playable. With just a couple of tweaks to the IQ settings, too, the frame rate would be even smoother.
