DOOM Eternal Loads in Just 5 Seconds On Xbox Series X


DOOM Eternal is available starting this October on the Xbox Game Pass. It can be played through backward compatibility on Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X comes with a fast storage option in the form of a propriety SSD. While this might lead to expensive upgrade choices, it is also proving to be a gamechanger when it comes to loading backward compatible games. They can be loaded insanely fast like it is the case with DOOM Eternal.

Microsoft is slowly giving influencers access to cover more games for the Xbox Series X through backward compatibility ahead of the launch of the console. It has led to some interesting results where load times remain the highlight.

In this case, DOOM Eternal was recently made available for Xbox Series X and  Spanish website 3DJuegos’ Director shared a video that showed the game loading on an Xbox Series X. It took just 5 seconds for the game to load from the main menu and this is without any enhancements that take advantage of the Velocity architecture of the Xbox Series X.

For comparison, the load times of DOOM Eternal on an Xbox One X with SSD are roughly 10 seconds so this is almost twice as fast. It also comes quite close to the high-end PC running with the top-of-the-line SSD even though the game is not programmed right now to use the extra hardware power offered by the Xbox Series X.

5 seconds on the series x means less than one second on the ps5. Awesome!

Better GPU/CPU trumps having a better SSD. Watching that load time felt instant, so asking for quicker loading at the expense of gimping hardware is a fail. Don’t forget, this game isn’t even optimized.

Yeah indeed better cpu and gpu indeed, seems like you’ve forgotten how the regular ps4 completely trashed the way games on xb1x look and perform LOL. PS5 will trump xsx both in visuals and performance. Don’t worry the xsx will get raytracing patched in eventually 🤣😂🤣😂

No, I haven’t forgotten. The PS4 mediocrity caused me to sell it and keep my Xbox. Pretty graphics didn’t save TLOU2 from being one of most embarrassing games of this generation.

Performance? Lol PS5’s SSD is 2x faster yet still loads it’s OS slower haha. Making all these claims without Sony showing anything at all a month before release? If only Sony were as confident as you.

Raytracing will be fine…at least I don’t have to pay for it lol. You Sony slaves will defend any attempt Sony makes at screwing you and will make up the narrative when they stay silent.

CheesusCrisps419 October 5, 2020 - 4:36 pm

We haven’t seen the OS load yet 😂🤣😂🤣. Your whole reply has zero facts in it and 100% BS and based off your own personal opinions LOL and you call me a slave. Facts buddy, we only deal with facts. Now go play… uh…. ummmm……. probably nothing cus xbox has zero games 🤣😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🤣🤣😂😂

Dani October 5, 2020 - 4:36 pm

Yes, a video leaked of the OS loading:

Facts? You mean the fake insiders you believe that always get proven wrong? I have over 200 games on my Xbox champ. My PS4 had about 10. Sony have no games, though you’re lucky God of War turned out decent. Oh, also PS5 confirmed to have about 650 gb of SSD space lol. Another fail….

Well, apparently, this is it:

You are a slave – you go to Xbox articles and try to make it about PS5. Your free marketing is terrible, it only makes gamers like me want to stick exclusively with Xbox. People like you are doing more marketing than Sony is, and despite how bad their messaging is, yours is far worse.

No games? My Xbox has over 200 games. My PS4 had about 10, and that’s including remakes and remasters. Xbox does more and does better. A few decent exclusives doesn’t make a console great if it’s poorly engineered.

And it downloads it that fast on game pass too? Truly the “netflix of gaming” am I right lol? How does the 120gb Halo 5 fare out? Downloading and playing in less than 10 seconds I assume?
