You might remember when id Software said that DOOM Eternal could handle 1000FPS, well -- someone has done just that, powered DOOM Eternal with enough PC grunt to power it at over 1000FPS.

Polish overclocking team 'x-kom' used an Intel Core i7-9700K processor and ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, both the CPU and GPU were cooled under LN2 -- and both were heavily overclocked. The Core i7-9700K was pushed to an insane 6.6GHz, while the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti was cranked all the way up to 2.4GHz under LN2 cooling.

The team built a pretty kick ass PC, specced out with:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K
  • Motherboard: ASUS Maximus XI APEX
  • RAM: HyperX Predator DDR4-4000
  • GPU: ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti
  • Storage: Samsung 512GB M.2 NVMe EVO Plus
  • PSU: bequiet! 1200W Straight Power

But this wasn't enough...

The team had to go back, rip the system apart and do some surgery: liquid nitrogen cooling. Once this was done, the team were able to overclock the Core i7-9700K up to an insane 6.6GHz and the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti to a bonkers 2.4GHz.

With the below zero temperatures and crazy high CPU and GPU clocks, the team were able to push DOOM Eternal at over 1000FPS. The team explains:

"On day two, the moment of glory finally came. The DOOM Slayer was walking through the opening corridor of DOOM Eternal's "Hell on Earth" level when all eight CPU cores clocked at nearly 6.6GHz, and the frame meter registered exactly 1,006 frames per second. It even went up as high as 1,014 FPS during a tutorial map, exceeding the 1,000 FPS goal with frames to spare".
