"DOOM Eternal" Can Run At 1000 FPS, But Can Your PC Handle It?

A new reveal about DOOM Eternal will have PC players scrambling to figure out whether or not their tower can handle all the possible awesomeness. The folks over at id Software had a chat with IGN recently about the game in which they revealed that the game can run at 1000 FPS on PC. (Which is a hell of an upgrade compared to all their previous titles.) According to the company's Lead Engine Programmer Billy Kahn, the upgrade was chosen as part of a major overhaul to the game, with the intent of making "bigger explosions, more vibrant looking particle effects".

With that in mind, now comes the fun journey for all PC owners as they scramble to find out how many FPS their towers and laptops can handle before they crash or burn out. Because, let's be honest here, if you're an obsessed DOOM fan and you're looking forward to playing DOOM Eternal, chances are you're doing to start doing a few tests on your system. And if they can't get up to 1000 FPS, you're probably going to be looking for the right graphics card, software, and additional gear you may need to make that happen without killing your system. We wish you luck on that journey!
