There is little to no chance that NVIDIA will unveil its next-generation Ada Lovelace GPU at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, but if past leaks and rumors are accurate, it will arrive later this year.

When we last visited Doom Eternal earlier this week, the game's underlying id Tech 7 engine was upgraded to support both NVIDIA's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) 2.0 technology and real-time ray tracing. However, at this time, the support is limited to NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family of graphics cards. Now, we're... Read more...
When we reviewed Doom Eternal last year, we lauded its amazing graphics and thrilling gameplay, noting it is a graphical tour de force underpinned on the id Tech 7 engine. Our initial impression still stands up, and might even undersell the experience. How so? A new update adds NVIDIA's Deep Learning Super Sampling... Read more...

Doom Eternal's next and final DLC, The Ancient Gods – Part 2, comes out tomorrow and should be a hell-razing good time. Developer iD Software announced the expansion with a tweet and trailer, which you can see below, but at the end of the day, the “war against Hell ends here.” The Ancient Gods – Part 2 follows Doom...

If people can get Doom running on old Nintendo hardware, surely Doom can come to the Nintendo Switch, right? Well, Bethesda is telling gamers to “Prepare for Joy-Con Carnage” as Doom: Eternal will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on December 8th.

We already know that the GeForce RTX 3080 is going to be a performance monster, but just how good will it be in the real world? Well, NVIDIA is giving us a nice taste of what to expect with the first official gameplay footage of the GeForce RTX 3080 running Doom Eternal at 4K resolution. And we should say; this...

It is official, the ability to run Crysis is no longer an appropriate metric for measuring a PC's performance potential. I propose a new query—can your PC run Doom Eternal...at ONE THOUSAND frames per second!?!? Not at stock, it can't, and I doubt NVIDIA's upcoming graphics card will move the needle to four-digit...

Id software recently announced that it was adding anti-cheat software to its popular game Doom Eternal. What id Software chose to go with to protect BATTLEMODE multiplayer gamers from cheaters was Denuvo, which requires kernel-level access to the host computer. Id Software has now promised to remove the anti-cheat... Read more...
Doom Eternal has been an incredibly popular game since it launched earlier this year, but something new was added to help stop cheaters in multiplayer mode on the PC. An update added Denuvo Anti-Cheat software on May 14, and some players are outraged. Denuvo parent company Irdeto wrote in a blog post that the... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Half Geeks, Marco, Dave, and Chris will be covering AMD's hot, new Ryzen 4000 Mobile platform in the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop, id Software's killer and hella-fun Doom Eternal, and NVIDIA's latest DLSS 2.0 release with much better visuals and performance...

Doom is a game franchise that needs no introduction. In 1992, id Software laid down the groundwork for first-person shooters with Wolfenstein 3D. When Doom came along a year later, the studio cemented its status among elite American game developers, thanks in no small part to the game's outstanding graphics and... Read more...
Gamers who purchased Doom Eternal have quickly realized that Bethesda made a mistake in its packaging for the Bethesda Launcher. Everyone knew that Doom Eternal would be using Denuvo DRM to keep the game from being cracked and posted online -- or at least it would slow hackers down for a while. However, the developers...

Doom Eternal is here, and the early consensus around the HotHardware email thread is that the game is absolutely stunning. The 2016 Doom reboot ran great on relatively pedestrian hardware thanks to obsessive fine tuning by id Software and its id Tech 6 engine. The new Doom is harder, faster, and louder, but still...

GameStop may have jumped the gun a bit yesterday by releasing DOOM Eternal a day early in its retail stores (in a bid to help stop the spread of COVID-19 according to a statement), but today is the game's "official" launch day. DOOM Eternal is highly anticipated, as it is the successor to the DOOM reboot that first... Read more...
In many places, you can't walk into a movie theater and catch a flick or waltz into most restaurants for a meal (it's delivery or pick-up only), but you sure as heck can march yourself into GameStop. Well, for now, anyway. There has been a call for 'social distancing' in light of the coronavirus pandemic, and while... Read more...
Information regarding id Software's incoming Doom Eternal has been coming in at a furious pace in recent weeks. We recently learned that the id Tech 7 engine is capable of sustaining 1,000 fps (if your hardware can handle it), and we're now getting a glimpse at the minimum and recommended specs for the follow-up the...

Forget all about Crysis, the new question is, can your PC run Doom Eternal...at 1,000 frames per second? The answer is no, it cannot, though not from a lack of technical capabilities on the software side. If you have the necessary hardware—and you don't—you could run Doom Eternal at quadruple-digit framerates. This... Read more...
Perhaps one of the bigger surprises with Doom Eternal is that it will be launching on the Nintendo Switch, along with the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Less surprising is that it won't come out on the Switch at the same time as other platforms—id Software and its port partner Panic Button need a bit more time to... Read more...
According to id Software, the upcoming Doom Eternal will be "the best game we've ever made." That is a tall order to fill considering a string of great games that has come out of the software house over the past nearly three decades, but early trailers for the game have us buying into the hype.  We're equally...

We are eagerly anticipating the launch of Doom Eternal, especially after developer id Software boldly stated it's the "best game we've ever made." There are plenty of reasons to believe that is true. Unfortunately, real-time ray tracing is not one of them, because as much as id Software likes playing with shiny new... Read more...
