Doom Eternal – Best Graphics or Video Settings

In order to eliminate performance issues like lag, stutters and freezes in games you should always tweak the in-game graphics settings.

It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 2080 Super or a RX 5700 XT.

Though the system requirements of Doom Eternal are really high, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:

  • CPU : Intel i3 9100F
  • GPU : Zotac GTX 1650
  • RAM : 16GB DDR4 2400mhz
  • HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
  • Monitor Resolution : 1920×1080
  • OS : Windows 10 Professional 64-bit

The graphics or video settings we decided to go with:

Go to Settings and then Video. Apply the settings shown below.

[Note: Doom Eternal runs on the Vulkan API and there is no option to switch to DirectX or OpenGL like Doom 2016]

Display settings:

Window Mode Fullscreen
Vertical Sync Off
Enable HDR Off

Video settings:

Field of View 95
Motion Blur Medium
Performance Metrics Off

Accessibility settings:

Colorblind Rendering Mode Off

Advanced settings:

Overall Quality Custom
Texture Pool Size Medium
Shadow Quality Low
Reflections Quality Medium
Motion Blur Quality Low
Directional Occlusion Low
Lights Quality Medium
Particles Quality Medium
Decal Quality Medium
Water Quality High
Volumetrics Quality Medium
Texture Filtering Quality Ultra
Geometric Quality Medium
Chromatic Aberration Off
Sharpening 15
Film Grain 0
Resolution Scaling Mode Off
Resolution Scale 100
Resolution Scaling Target FPS 60
Depth of Field On
Depth of Field Anti-aliasing On

With the settings given above we easily managed to get close to 60 FPS. At times the frame rates even went more than 60+. It is true that you will notice some fps drops when there are too many enemies on your screen and there is a lot on in front of you. Overall I was quite satisfied with the performance.


How to disable anti-aliasing

If you think that your game is looking blurry then you can turn off the in-game anti-aliasing. Here is how to do it:

  • Press the tilde or swung dash (⁓) key on your keyboard
  • The console should come up on your screen
  • Now type this : r_antialiasing 0
  • Press Enter
