Polish Community Manager Bethesda Softworks Lukasz Lesniewski on the official website of the publishing house told how two enthusiasts managed to overclock DOOM Eternal up to 1000 frames / s.
As a reminder, in March Billy Kahn, the lead programmer of the DOOM Eternal engine statedthat id Tech 7 can achieve 1000 fps with the right tools.
Required to complete the task “A hell of a powerful PC” was found at the Polish computer chain x-kom, whose employees Marcin Rywak and Piotr Szymanski got down to business.
For overclocking, a computer was assembled with an 8-core Intel Core i7-9700K processor, an ASUS RTX 2080 Ti video card, HyperX Predator RAM, a Samsung M2 disk and a 1200W Straight Power from BeQuiet.
Lesniewski added that “If you overclock a powerful high voltage system to the limit, it gets very hot”… Therefore, liquid nitrogen was used for cooling at a temperature of -196 ° C.
However, not everyone was impressed by what they saw: some users noticed that the desired frame rate was achieved only due to the fact that the camera was aimed at the wall.
“We wanted as many people as possible to get involved in DOOM Eternal. This benefited not only super-cool systems, but also slightly outdated PCs, which also “pull” our game. “, – summed up Kahn.
DOOM Eternal is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will be coming to Nintendo Switch and next generation consoles… The trailer for the story expansion The Ancient Gods, Part One will be shown tonight at gamescom 2020 opening ceremonies…
