By and large, PC players with moderately powerful or relatively late-model hardware should be able to run Doom Eternal in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second. The minimum requirements call for an i5 or Ryzen processor running around 3.3GHz, while the developers recommend an i7-6700K or better for 1440p or higher frame rates. As usual, 8GB of RAM should be enough to keep gamers in the running, so long as it’s paired with a decent graphics card.

Here are the full Doom Eternal minimum and recommended system requirements as provided by the team at id Software.

Doom Eternal Minimum System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 3.3GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 @ 3.1GHz
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970/1650 4GB or AMD Radeon R9 290/RX 470 4GB
  • RAM: 8GB
  • OS: Windows 8/10 64-bit
  • HDD: 50GB

Doom Eternal Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080/RTX 2060 8GB or AMD Radeon RX Vega56 8GB
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: Windows 8/10 64-bit
  • HDD: 50GB

All things considered, the Doom Eternal system requirements aren’t too high. Most players will be able to get by with a fairly new i5 processor and a 4GB GPU. Of course, those who want to enjoy the game with higher resolutions, frame rates, or higher-quality textures will need some extra grunt to back it up. Still, even if your computer isn’t very powerful, it’s always possible to play Doom Eternal on consoles such as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch. Just don’t go expecting PC-level performance.
