Doom - Fury X Benchmarks

 Doom

 

  I'm a little late to party by a few days, but better late than ever. Doom is one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year. Since it’s awesome E3 reveal gamers have been drooling and waiting to get those wonderful graphics on their monitors. Well that has come for many fans. Usually the graphics shown at E3 aren’t used in the final product. That is not the case with Doom. The game is gorgeous and offers plenty of settings. So even if you are gaming on a laptop you can tweak tons of graphical settings to suit your needs. With all of that being said Doom can still stress some of the fastest cards on the mark at high resolutions.

  As Doom fans expected, it doesn’t take long to start killing demons. The game places you in all types of situations and definitely has an old school feel to it. It has everything you’ll expect, tons of violence, tons of blood, demons, monsters, cool melee kills, enemies giving the player health\ammo and the list goes on and one. The gameplay is fairly fast paced and the enemy AI appears to get more difficult as the game progresses. The game makes you feel like a real bad ass, however, the enemies will try their hardest to kill you. Just when you think you are man handling everything in sight a sneaky enemy might pull a OHK [one-hit-knockout] and it’s usually gruesome. Everything in this game is gruesome. It reminds me of the older days when games were violent just to be violent.

  With all of that being said let’s get to what you came here for, the Fury X benchmarks. Here is my setup:
