Doom Eternal Ray Tracing Analysis – AMD vs Nvidia!

Doom Eternal’s long-awaited ray tracing patch went live this week, bringing ray traced reflections and Nvidia DLSS to the game. We put it to the test by benchmarking Nvidia’s RTX 30-series and AMD’s RDNA 2 GPUs head-to-head, while also taking a look at the image quality on offer from both the ray traced reflections and DLSS implementation.
