editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system,
shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state

Do we get awesome performance when
running 1600x1200 with the highest quality settings? Yup. The Asus EN7800GT
2DHTV/256M/OSP/A still kicks some major pixels. It's funny to see how little SLI
helps out when AA+AF is enabled at its max. The power of marketing is strong in
Doom 3 is

which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything.
The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is

It is amazing to look at these Doom 3
