NVIDIA announced both their GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards on Friday. As part of the event they brought game developer id Software to the stage to show off the upcoming title DOOM. So how did the GTX 1080 handle the game? It hit 200 FPS on Ultra settings! Check out the video below!
The game makes use of the Vulkan low-overhead API. It lets developers take advantage of the GPU in conjunction with several CPU cores.
The game is being played at 1080p and the settings are set to Ultra. The team had V-Sync turned on for the first couple of minutes, which keeps the frame rate at a solid 60 FPS. Around the 1 minute 50 second mark of the video V-Sync is turned off and the FPS jumps up to 170 – 200 FPS!
Id’s developers said that they are still trying to fix some graphical issues with the game runs at 200 FPS, which they “weren’t able to detect until they had the performance of the GTX 1080.”
DOOM will launch this Friday with OpenGL support and will receive a Vulkan support update soon after. The GTX 1080 will be available worldwide from May 27th for $599 or $699 for the Founders Edition.
