Game ready is just a scam. All it does is add a profile for DOOM which probably matches RAGE (ie. engine optimisations). I'm not sure why NVIDIA bother with GFE for automatic profile updates and never make use of it, instead making you download 300mb driver sets that are essentially just an INF update. They need to stop doing this and go back to quarterly releases that are less buggy, and offering support for new games via profile update via GFE instead.

I just had to laugh - since the original DOOM did not even require a 3D card and ran the entire 3D engine in software on the CPU.

The original DOOM was not 3d as we define 3d here. Thus, no 3d card support (not that any mainstream consumer cards existed at the time it was released anyways).

The original Doom didn't even require an FPU.

This game runs very well on my 8350 4.6ghz and 390x. I run it completely maxed out at 1440p w/8x TAA and get very playable frame rates (45-90). The only thing is, when v-sync is enabled on this game it TANKS performance. That and there is currently no multi-monitor support.

Anyway, the game is Fantastic!@!! It's the Best Possible Re-Imagining I could have ever hoped for in DOOM. I am absolutely in Love. I will have some gameplay up soon and a review on XBnPC (Youtube). There's also a DOOM prep video for anybody that wants a driver link, or just some pre-install tips. Anyway, hope you're all enjoying this one! I know I will be for a Long Time :D

I'm more curious as to why Tom's would have such a blatant plug for nVidia/DOOM. A huge GEFORCE header and a DOOM launch trailer? Come on Tom's...this isnt "news" and you sure as heck don't provide such "FYI" articles for the majority of titles.
