Doom is coming out on May 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The title looks amazing on consoles but PC is the platform you want to play DOOM, especially, if you’re planning to get a GTX 1080.
The beast of a graphics card can run the game between 120 – 200 frames per second. During a recent presentation of the game ID Software joined Nvidia to show some new gameplay using Vulkan API and Pascal GTX 1080. Frame rates are amazing and it looks like the game was running a very high settings, the video is off-screen but still we can judge how high the settings were.
Doom is a very demanding game but GTX 1080 handles it like it’s nothing. The card is releasing on May 27 and Doom on GTX 1080 demonstration shows the true power of this beast.
What’s great about GTX 1080 is that it is cheap. Its price of performance ratio is amazing. At $599 it beats the GTX Titan X, GTX 980 and is 50% more powerful than GTX 980Ti.
The new card pretty much kills Titan X and offers better performance than 980Ti, the card who also murdered Titan X. It is possible that Nvidia will either drastically reduce Titan X price or will discontinue it all together. Speaking of price reduction, expect changes across the entire GTX 900 series once Pascal releases.
If you are a PC gamer looking to upgrade your hardware and is willing to spend $350 to $500, we recommend waiting for Pascal series – GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.
The later is releasing in early June for $379.
