In an interview with Video Games Chronicle, Stratton claims that DOOM Eternal is the best technology the studio has ever made.
I’m sure it will push the PS4 Pro fan to it’s absolute limits also.
Time to change the thermal paste :)
yeah me too haha
“Time to change the thermal paste” We have two PS4 Pros. Mine is quite but my girlfriends is super loud. Got them at the same time also. Crazy.
I just did that and changed the thermal pads also and now my PS4 Pro is so quiet. It's amazing. I used Thermal Grizzly if anyone wants to know.
I have an OG launch PS4 that got a bit noisy so I took it to bits and couldn't believe how much dusty crap collected by the Apu
Thinking about cleaning the PS4 Pro heatsink and applying some of this thermal paste. Some people claim nothing works but it’s worth a try. https://www.amazon.com/ARCT...
It was loud when it was new, so who's fault is it? Because apparently the newer Pro models don't get so loud.
“It was loud when it was new, so who's fault is it? Because apparently the newer Pro models don't get so loud.” Both my PS4 Pro’s are the new model. They’re not all quite apparently. It’s a lottery.
You buy a console so you don't have to do shit like applying thermal paste.
Visceral89 Well shit, enjoy you're rocket launcher than. Nowhere does it say on the box or anywhere that it will be quiet or loud for that matter. You buy a console so you could play games on it that's about it.
I'm unsure about this game as I didn't care at all for the last one. May rent it or something. It would be nice to see what a game pushing the system to the limit would do (although that can always vary)
If you didn't care for the last you certainly won't care less for this, more of the same amazing gameplay and graphics but even better.
I tore mine down and the biggest culprit was the heatsinks basically being wrapped in dust. Thermal paste was actually ok although I reapplied it but it was the dust
Dude thats the majority. When they open their ps4s theyll see the heatsink is just a big grey mass.
I wonder if she just plays hers more than you do, or it doesnt have proper ventilation. When i first got mine i had to buy a mini fan to point at it because of how warm it got after long play sessions. Just a thought
I've got the latest model (without the fat plug) 3 months ago & it's so much quieter.
I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I have a day 1 PS4 that I use everyday... whisper quiet...never been cleaned or opened...ever. Clean house = clean console
Some of the pros, and I assume the originals, had the thermal paste put on poorly. Mine had about a whole tubes worth on the APU, and it had squished out the side, with hardly any between the APU and heatsink. I put on some new thermal paste, and it's been quiet ever since.
Then open a side business where you go clean ps4 peoples houses lol - you could make a fortune.
My pro is silent as the grave
Yah pushing ps4 to its limit is great. Doesn't bode well for the xbox one though.
Really wonder how the vanilla Xbox one is gonna run this thing
Bigger question: how can this run on a switch
@masterchiefswaggy Lol yes it is. 50% more gpu power and 3X faster ram. It helps. A lot. Lol. Master chief sucks
I played Modern Warfare and Gears 5 on it. Gears 5 has a few frame drops when there is intense action and Modern Warfare’s resolution drops sometimes. Im guessing DOOM will also chose to drop the resolution over frames due to being an FPS. It’s nothing too bad, but this gen is starting to show its age.
Maybe it'll get pushed off to next gen lol I kid....
Nlink0714: Prob sub 720p while barely substaining 30 fps. I find it funny xbox fans call a ps4pro a "protato" while ignoring their own "potato" 🙈 Concertoine: How dare you make my eyes even think about bleeding. 🥺
It'll run it fine. Optimisation is key. We are reaching the end of a console generation so "pushing hardware to the limit" is expected. As is competent devs that know how to work with the platforms.
I sure hope so!
Excited to see how this plays on Switch. Will be nice to have this on the go. Will probably get both PS4 and Switch versions. I will have more time to play on Switch, but when I am at home I would like to see what the Pro can do on the TV.
press X to doubt...
Considering it is running at 60 fps..... That is a huge achievement. They and Capcom could have easily pushed visual barriers past any console games this gen if they weren't going for 60 fps I think.
I love this stuff. Sure they max out the hardware, but then Sony first-party developers make a game that looks far more stunning than any third-party developer and in a much more efficient way. So, I take this with a grain of salt or write it off completely.
Sony first party games also aren’t 60fps Games like DOOM dude...
Guess I should wait till the PS5 version then.
Yeah. Do that. That way you get to play [nothing] until PS5 comes out...unless you're happy slogging through your back log for the next 10 months
If it's a backlog then it's still a new, unplayed game to that person. Something they obviously have an interest in, otherwise they wouldn't have gotten it in the first place. How is that the same as "playing nothing"? You don't make sense.
There will probably be enhancements for next gen. A simple patch should do it.
But how will it run on the X1X? That is the console I am buying it for.
That’s why I got that one X.
Everybody who bought a vanilla Xbox one should be offered a full refund or a One X free of charge! That thing is a necessity more than a convenience
I play RE 2 on my regular Ps4, and the fan sounds like a Plane revving up to take off :/ Is that normal or should I be worried? If Doom is gonna do that, I sure hope my Ps4 lasts lol
Mine was sounding like that but I found out this was due to it being in a tight area in my tv stand, I took it out and put it on top where it was in the open and now it sounds quiet.
I'm keeping mine on top of the Tv table, and is well ventilated. I also dust it regularly and try to keep the area clean. I'm simply worried if there is something wrong within the console or if it is normal for base model of PS4 to do that. It's not the slim, it's the launch edition models with one glossy side on top.
I've tied my ps4 down, I swear it moves when the fans kicks in
Probably will end up double dipping on this one like Doom 2016 (Switch version + higher end version). Only question is if I should opt for PC for the higher end or just wait for next gen releases. My base PS4 is starting to struggle hard with newer games.
Tbh doom has tremendous visuals too bad about the 90gb install
This is always the case by the end of a generation, it should not be news
