To help show off the RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia teamed up with id Software to show off some Doom Eternal gameplay – and it’s stunning.
The gameplay demo, which you can check out below, is powered by id’s proprietary idTech engine and the footage captured in the video is running on a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at 4K with ray tracing enabled.
This is the first time we’ve seen the game show off raytracing – and it’s gorgeous. The video description says the trailer lets you “experience the game’s stunning visual fidelity and frantic action like never before” and it’s not messing around. It’s like watching a different game, at points.
The trailer was debuted during Nvidia’s COMPUTEX keynote address that also included a suite of gaming and creator announcements besides the Doom trailer.
NVIDIA debuted two new GPUs including a new flagship gaming GPU in the GeForce RTX 3800 Ti, and the new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, and also announced more games are getting RTX support, including Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rainbow Six Siege, bringing the total up to over 130 games that support the features.
If we can expect games using the tech to look like Doom Eternal, it’s a good time to be a PC gamer. Let’s just hope the ongoing chip shortage can be addressed and people will actually be able to get hold of the new cards.
We recently heard that “there are more stories to tell with the Doom Slayer” and id Software isn’t done with the series yet.
