On Friday night, Nvidia announced the GeForce GTX 1080, its newest and most powerful GPU. Now, as part of the announcement event, id Software developers demonstrated the soon-to-launch Doom running on the ultra-powerful graphics card–and the results are impressive.
Take a look:
PC Gamer shot this video of the demonstration, and explained that the game was running using the Vulkan API. As you can see, at the start of the video, Doom runs at 1080p/60FPS, but after V-Sync is disabled, frame rate jumps to 120-200FPS. Note that 1080p was the limit of the monitor.
“id says there are still a few graphical glitches they’re working to fix, specifically when the game hits 200 FPS,” PC Gamer said. “Apparently there are some bugs in the game engine at 200FPS that they ‘weren’t able to detect until they had the performance of the GTX 1080.'”
As for the GTX 1080 card, the $600 card comes out at the end of the month. Check out GameSpot’s breakdown report of the card here to learn more.
