Robert Duffy on Doom3

July 26 2004

Robert Duffy updated his .plan file with some info about the rendering technology of Doom3, as well as some other info. What I love about this is that Robert revealed that if you have 512 Megs of ram on your Graphics Card, then Doom3 can run with uncompressed textures ... how many 512 Meg video cards are they today (answer is none at the mainstream level). I just ordered a new Dell and the top of the line video card I could get was 256 megs of ram. What this means is that the life cycle of the Doom3 engine is HUGE ... August 3rd is only 8 days away!
