To help show off RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia teamed up with Id Software to showcase some Doom Eternal gameplay – and it’s stunning.
The demo of the game, which you can see below, is powered by its own idTech engine id and the footage captured in the video runs on a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in 4K with ray tracing enabled.
It’s the first time we’ve seen the game perform a raytracing – and it’s wonderful. The description of the video says that the trailer will allow you to “experience the stunning visual fidelity of the game and the frantic action like never before” and it’s not a mess. It’s like watching another game, points.
The trailer debuted during Nvidia’s main address on COMPUTEX, which, in addition to the Doom trailer, also included a set of games and announcements from the creators.
NVIDIA debuted with two new GPUs, including a new flagship GPU in the GeForce RTX 3800 Ti and a new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, and also announced that other games are receiving RTX support, including Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rainbow Six Siege, bringing the total to more than 130 games that support these features.
If we can expect games using this technology to look like Doom Eternal, this is a good time to be a PC gamer. Let’s just hope that it will be possible to solve the persistent shortage of chips and that people will really be able to grab new cards.
We recently heard that “more stories can be told with Doom Slayer” and id Software is not finished with this series.
