id Software seems to have hit a homerun with the new DOOM, but I'm loving the performance analysis side of things from sites like Gamers Nexus, and now Digital Foundry has tested the console version of the game.

Digital Foundry's testing was done on the Xbox One and PS4 versions of DOOM, with the PS4 version being the better of the two. DOOM runs at 1080p 60FPS on both the Xbox One and PS4, with Digital Foundry reporting that the Xbox One version of DOOM falls "well below" 1080p at times, but adds that "It's pretty simple to say that it looks and runs smoother on Sony's console. But the Xbox One version is no slouch, either".

DOOM allows gamers to tweak some graphics settings on the console, such as chromatic aberration, motion blur and even the field of view. Loading times on the consoles are actually pretty bad, with 10-15 seconds between some of the levels. Remember you need 5GB+ of VRAM to enable the 'Nightmare' graphics setting in DOOM... yeah.
