– 8 GB RAM; 55 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 670 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or better.

• Recommended PC System Requirements:
– Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions); Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better.
– 8 GB RAM; 55 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 970 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better.

If you can handle the game, then for PC users there’s a myriad of causes that might be causing you issues. That’s why, as of May 13th 2016, the latest driver numbers for both NVIDIA and AMD cards have been recommended downloads so your graphics card is fully up to date to play DOOM with less/no issues. The latest driver versions can be found below:

How To Fix Lag & High Ping

Make sure your internet speed is at least 4MB/second or faster to be able to play online matches without any lag and high ping issues.

To ensure you have this speed, check your cable internet subscription. A faster way to check if you don’t know, is to run an “internet speed test” via your internet service provider’s (ISP’s) website or an internet speed test app.

Generally speaking having a wired internet cable connection ensures faster and more stable speeds compared to a Wi-Fi connection.
