You'll be fine once it starts getting colder and darker.
Then i'll just fall asleep even quicker!
At the moment I usually wake up at 5.30am and usually end up collapsing after work a around 8.30pm while watching something on tv. Then I just wake up at around 11.00pm usually long enough to turn stuff off, plug stuff in to charge and fall back asleep again!
Yeah, saying that I tend to not play games that much in the evening when it's dark early, just want to relax and watch TV or something.
I mostly play on days off work in the Autumn/Winter.
The Vulkan patch and driver is out now. Looks like it gives a significant boost in performance over OpenGL in this game. I would try it but the 690 isn't currently supported, or any 2GB card for that matter.
Does the game have DX to compare?
I don't think so. But you can compare it with OpenGL. You can switch between the two in the options.
Here's a couple of comparison shots with stats posted by someone on NeoGAF:
Yeah I was more interested in the performance comparison with DX. I have really high hopes for Vulkan to unseat DX.
I set the API to Vulkan but didn't notice any difference, that's not to say there wasn't as the game ran extremely well for me before anyway.
I tried it on my other system earlier today (i7-4770k, GTX780) and only saw a slight increase in fps. But I also noticed that the game runs quite badly (stuttering) on it under OpenGL too.
Biggest gains are being seen on AMD GPUs:
Those gains are considerably more on AMD. I know Nvidia is not the best for DX12, it is looking similar for Vulkan at the moment.
AMD's hardware handles asynchronous compute much better and it's something Nvidia will probably address in future chip designs.
Anyone know what this 12 gig update is all about? Taking the piss a bit.
That addition to SnapMap probably takes up most of the download.
I have been playing this the last few days since it is on sale on Steam. I'm really enjoying it. The encounters are very well designed. I kept some strange crashes and performance issues with Vulkan though. The framerates are higher, but it doesn't feel as smooth.
People have found that this new patch also removes Denuvo from the game.
NoClip (Danny O'Dwyer's Patreon funded video game documentary series) are doing a documentary on the creation of Doom, and they just put out the trailer:
Should be an interesting watch for sure - this game had a troubled development by all accounts so it's kind of amazing it turned out the way it did!
Thanks, I look forward to watching this. Strange how the game sort of crept up out of nowhere, I don't think many expected to be quite as good as it turned out. Also pleasantly surprised to see how quickly Danny O'Dwyer is producing these documentaries.
